Defining Whistleblower Retaliation

Whistleblower retaliation occurs when an employer takes adverse action against an employee who has reported illegal conduct or illegal activities within the organization. Such actions can include termination, demotion, harassment, or any other form of discrimination. 

The complaint cannot be about just improper conduct, but the report has to be about conduct that violates a state or federal rule, statute, or regulation.
