What makes someone a whistleblower?
A whistleblower is an individual who discloses information about wrongdoing. Often, the whistleblower does so even though the wrongdoing that s/he witnesses is considered the norm or accepted behavior for that particular environment. Because the wrongdoing is — unfortunately—considered accepted behavior, the decision to blow the whistle is a difficult one. Those in the whistleblower’s immediate environment often try to convince the whistleblower that what s/he believes is unethical, or indeed illegal, is acceptable and legal. Whistleblowers question themselves and seek information to either validate their own conclusions or to question their conclusions.
Many of the top whistleblower law firms constantly hear questions like, “How do I become a whistleblower?” or “How do I bring a whistleblower case?” This website was in part developed as a tool to help whistleblowers through this dilemma.
