An employer may not retaliate against a worker for disclosing information about: state or federal law violations, managers in state or local government who abuse authority, people who waste large amounts of public money, or threats to the health or safety of the public.
Before sharing the information with anyone other than a lawyer, union representative or elected official, the employee must share the information, in writing, with either a supervisor or the appropriate governmental unit.
To determine which governmental units qualify, or to file a retaliation complaint, call the Equal Rights Division of the state Department of Workforce Development at 414-227-4384.
A law passed earlier this year also protects the identities of whistleblowers who share information with journalists.
