The American workplace has changed dramatically over the past few years. More workers share positions, work remotely, or do “gig work” rather than having full-time jobs. This changing landscape sometimes exposes conduct by an employer or co-worker that is fraudulent or otherwise illegal that may have gone unnoticed or unreported for many years. It can also lead to new kinds of unlawful activity, like improper payment of workers or misuse of public funds. If you observe or suspect your employer is engaging in illegal activity, know your rights and responsibilities before blowing the whistle.
