What Is a Whistleblower Claim?

A whistleblower claim refers to a claim or report by an employee that discloses their employer’s fraud, waste, abuse, corruption, wrongdoing, illegal or unethical activity, or endangering of people’s health and safety. In most cases, a whistleblower will report their employer’s wrongdoing to a government agency or to law enforcement, who may rely on the employee to provide critical testimony and evidence for the government’s investigation.

A whistleblower claim can also refer to a legal claim or lawsuit filed by an employee after they suffer retaliation from their employer due to their whistleblowing activity. The employee can seek financial and legal relief against their employer for losses they suffered due to retaliatory employment decisions, such as denial of promotions or raises, adverse reassignments, or firing.
