In most cases, whistleblowers have legal protections against retaliation. If you exercise your legal rights at work in good faith, for example, there are laws that prohibit your employer from firing you or taking other adverse job actions against you.

You should work with an experienced lawyer to ensure your rights are protected, but the law is on your side.
