Can I Get Whistleblower Protection?

Yes, you can get whistleblower protection in many cases, although not in everyone.

The False Claims Act and SEC Whistleblower Program both have provisions that, if you qualify, can protect you when you face job related retaliation for being a whistleblower or suspected whistleblower. (See 31 U.S.C. Section 3730(h) for FCA cases and 15 U.S.C. Section 78u-6(h)(1) for SEC matters.) There are also a whistleblower protection laws in a number of specific industries, such as banking, healthcare, transportation, environmental protection, nuclear power, etc. The IRS Whistleblower Program however does not have a whistleblower protection provision.
