I have some exposure to whistle blower protections. What are your questions?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Who would you report it to if its a nonprofit program or place that is doing what you would suspect is some sketchy stuff.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
What if what you are reporting is programs for needy and homeless, also homeless shelters to be more specific?

What protections do you get under whistle blowing protection?
Employment Lawyer: Asad Rahman, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

Typically you get protections against being fired and sometimes you can get monetary damages for your help. You could report it to the IRS and to your state's attorney general office.

OK if it isn't a fired situation. Then how would that work if you are going through one of their program or have somebody that is a client of one of their program . How would they be protected.
Employment Lawyer: Asad Rahman, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

So different federal and state agencies offer different levels of protection or compensation so I'd need to have a clearer picture of the situation.
