A qualified lawyer can answer all of your whistleblower questions

As you know, many of our cities and townships here in Michigan have been fraught with allegations of wrongdoing. Some of these cases have reached their conclusions while others are still ongoing. These stories bring up a lot of questions for Detroit residents, especially those who are considering blowing the whistle on corruption.

Whistleblower programs that all Americans should know about

Those who are considering blowing the whistle on criminal or unethical activities in the Detroit region worry quite a bit about the possibility of retaliation. This concern is not just natural; it is completely understandable. After all, most whistleblowers have families that they want to protect from the fallout of blowing the whistle. Examples of whistleblower retaliation include:

Time limits exist for filing whistleblower retaliation complaints

Those who decide to become whistleblowers in Michigan are brave people who deserve all of the protections the law provides. After all, it is not easy to call out corruption as it may take a toll on the whistleblower and his or her family. To make an already difficult situation even worse, these courageous individuals must often face retaliation for their efforts to expose wrongdoing.

Have you ever had a job in which you experienced a feeling that you were about to get fired? Perhaps you tried to ignore it and continue performing your duties. A few days or weeks later, sure enough, your boss calls you in and tells you that he or she no longer requires your services.

When your ethical self convinces you to become a whistleblower

Anyone who decides to become a whistleblower has his or her reasons for speaking out. This may surprise you, but the possibility of gaining a financial reward does not offer much motivation for blowing the whistle. Most whistleblowers in Michigan never receive a huge sum of money in exchange for the information they possess. So, why do people decide to take such a big step for little-to-no personal gain?

How does the Motor Vehicle Safety Whistleblower Act work?

Even though potential auto industry whistleblowers in Michigan have several ways to report safety infractions to the government, the Motor Vehicle Safety Whistleblower Act (MVSWA) may make it easier. The MVSWA protects consumers as well as the public because it encourages those with knowledge about safety infractions to alert the government.

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.

Don't do these things if you want to be a whistleblower

Most whistleblowers stumble across signs of fraud or wrongdoing totally by accident. In the majority of cases, these people are reluctant to blow the whistle because they fear retaliation from the parties responsible for misconduct. It usually takes a potential whistleblower some time to decide to speak out.

Whistleblowers are critical in making America a wonderful place

Fraud in all of its forms undermines the efforts honest U.S. citizens make to enrich our nation. Whether it is massive corporate schemes or unethical small business activities, fraud continues to plague Michigan and the entire country. Fortunately, whistleblowers continue to emerge from the shadows, intent on fighting against wrongdoing of any type.
