Can I Get Whistleblower Protection?

In most instances, the remedy for whistleblower retaliation is monetary compensation, including up to two times back pay in some cases. But, it can also include reinstatement and other forms of monetary and equitable relief.

Usually, whistleblower protection applies when your employer terminates your employment (or demotes you, refuses to compensate you fairly or ostracizes you). It can also apply if your employer “black lists” you after you have left your job or if a subsequent employer fires you because they discovered you were a whistleblower during previous employment. You probably will not get whistleblower protection if a prospective employer refuses to hire you because they think you were a whistleblower in the past. However, this can vary depending on which whistleblower protection law applies and where your case is filed.
