What to do and not to do if you want to blow the whistle

Corporate fraud, employer misconduct and unethical business activities are three situations that can lead to whistleblower claims. As a responsible resident of Michigan, you may decide to call out these or other types of wrongdoing. Once you decide to take this undeniably massive step, you will want to do all you can to help the authorities prove your claims.

As attorneys who help to protect whistleblowers, we also want to help you prove your claims. Of course, we can best accomplish this goal by serving as your legal counsel. However, we cannot in good conscience, limit our knowledge only to our clientele. Even if you choose to go it alone or choose a different lawyer, we still want to help you take a stand against wrongdoing.

With that goal in mind, we want to share with you some of the things you should and should not do once you decide to become a whistleblower. These tips have many benefits such as protecting your anonymity and lessening the risk that you may inadvertently complicate your claim.

  • Do: Document everything that you say and do that is related to your whistleblower claims.
  • Do not: Speak about the whistleblower claim on social media or with any other unauthorized parties.
  • Do: Find an experienced whistleblower lawyer to protect your rights and to help you overcome any retaliation attempts.
  • Do not: Automatically assume that your role in the case will be quick and easy.
  • Do: Rely on family, friends and your attorney for support throughout your claim.
  • Do not: Make statements to the media without approval and guidance from your legal counsel.

We encourage you to continue reading our blog as well as the resources on our website if you need more information about blowing the whistle on misconduct.
