Whistleblower Lawyers Serving Las Cruces, Santa Fe and All of New Mexico
Our society and our economy rely on honest, ethical behavior to flourish and thrive. Whistleblowers play a central role in bringing unethical or unlawful activities to light. They are the unsung heroes who help promote public safety and keep the playing field fair for everyone.
What is a Whistleblower?
The term “whistleblower” generally refers to an employee who reports unethical conduct occurring within his or her place of employment to an outside agency. It also refers to an employee who refuses to participate in unethical conduct or to go along with unlawful schemes.
Whistleblowing can concern a broad range of unlawful or unethical conduct, including:
- Safety violations
- Unlawful acts
- Acts involving waste or misappropriation of government funds or resources
- Fraud or misrepresentation
- Financial mismanagement or waste
- Tax violations
- Environmental violations
- Unethical or illegal business practices
All too often, these heroes face illegal retaliation as a result of standing up for what is right. They often lose their jobs and may even face defamation or slander as their employers attempt to save face and avoid the consequences. Fortunately, whistleblowers have important rights under state and federal law.
