Legal Protection For New York Whistleblowers
Often, employees are in the best position to identify illegal and unethical business practices. They have an insider’s perspective on the day-to-day operations of the business. They may have access to business accounting information, internal memos and other documents that reveal problematic business practices.
The law provides protections for employees who blow the whistle on:
- Discriminatory employment practices
- Hostile work environments
- Sexual harassment in the workplace
- Fraud and other unscrupulous financial practices
- Misuse of donations or government funds
- Environmental violations
- Workplace safety violations
- Other illegal and unethical practices
