Whistleblower

Throughout the world employers face a growing body of law protecting the rights of employee whistleblowers.  In the United States, federal, state and even local law create a wide variety of causes of action for employment-related retaliation  against whistleblowers in addition to providing financial incentives for employees and their attorneys to report illegal employer behavior.  The European Union has set a similar course and many other countries - notably, Malaysia  - have recently enacted similar legislation or are considering such legislation.  The principal purpose of the international whistleblower law group is to collect and regularly update the applicable law in as many jurisdictions as possible, to collect and make available to ELA members and their clients sample policies designed to mitigate exposure to such claims, and to provide a forum for the discussion of whistleblower issues in the workplace.
