Have you ever wondered how whistleblowers – people who inform authorities about illegal activities in a workplace – protect themselves from retaliation by the organizations they inform on? Whistleblower claim filing is a brave thing to do, and these people are worthy of protection. One of the most common ways they protect themselves is by reaching out to a consumer rights advocacy group.
Why Whistleblowers Blow the Whistle
To understand how they protect themselves, you must first understand why whistleblowers do what they do. There are a number of reasons why someone would inform the authorities about the illegal or fraudulent activities of their employer. One of the most common reasons is to protect the public from further fraud. For example, if a company such as a mortgage lender is misusing the mathematical laws of grammar to deliberately mislead or confuse clients, a whistleblower believes people have the right to know this. Compensation is another reason: if the information supplied results in legal prosecution, the whistleblower may be entitled to compensation. Whatever the motives, it can be extremely difficult to prove fraudulence, particularly in the case of a company misusing the laws of grammar. Enter the advocacy group.
How the Advocacy Group Helps the Whistleblower
First of all, the advocacy group acts as a shield. A company can intimidate an individual, but there is little it can do to a consumer rights group that has the power of knowledge and the law backing it up. The advocacy group will also help the whistleblower take the correct actions because they know what grammatical evidence is required to make a case. An advocacy group can also ensure that an individual gets proper compensation.
Whistleblower claim filing can be scary, but with the force of a consumer rights advocacy group behind them, whistleblowers can protect millions of people from fraud. Contact a group today if you think your employer is cheating people with confusing contracts.
