Federal Employment Lawyer DC
“Whistleblowers” are people who report illegal or unethical conduct to prevent it from continuing. They are often seen by the public as heroes without capes. Whistleblowers who use their advantage to protect the public from fraud or other abuses deserve this accolade and are truly important to the protection of America’s government, healthcare, and economic system, just to name a few. Whistleblowers also, however, need their own protection. Whistleblowers may face public scrutiny, a difficult investigation into their own conduct and personal lives, and may even face termination from their jobs or other forms of workplace retaliation. Many whistleblowers turn to a federal employment lawyer in DC to ensure their rights are protected.
If you are considering joining the ranks of the men and women who have blown the whistle on misconduct, you no doubt have considered the risks you are taking by reporting the unethical or illegal conduct that you have seen.
