When you’re employed by an agency or company, and you witness activity you think might be illegal, it can be very difficult to know when and if you should speak up. Federal employees and government contractors are protected by numerous laws that protect their ability as whistleblowers, to report fraud, and to refuse to engage in unlawful activity.
That all sounds pretty simple, but we can all recall circumstances when a whistleblower reported an illegal act, and the employer retaliated through a demotion, a meaningfully worse assignment, or termination. Your integrity matters, but knowing what information to share, with whom, and when can all be highly subjective. The Martzen Law Firm is here to help.
