Employees, both senior and junior, are often the first to observe corporate wrongdoing. But, many employees fear reporting wrongdoing to upper management will result in reprisals against them. Regrettably, many corporations have historically victimized those trying to do the right thing. And such reprisals chilled and deterred those with knowledge of the wrongdoing from taking action.
However, in modern times whistleblowing on corporate wrongdoing is not only allowed, the whistleblower has protections under the law! Importantly, the first person to report the wrongdoing is often rewarded under the law. Multiple Federal and State laws protect and reward the first Whistleblower for stepping forward and reporting corporate misconduct against the government.
