National Whistleblower Day

Content Development

July 30th was National Whistleblower Day. This day commemorates the passage of the very first U.S. whistleblower law, which was passed on July 30, 1778. A whistleblower is someone who reports workplace conditions that they believe to be unsafe or illegal. As a whistleblower, you have the right to be protected from workplace retaliation by an employer for reporting injuries, safety concerns, illegal activity, and other protected activities. Whistleblowers perform an important service for the public and the Department of Justice (DOJ) when they report evidence of wrongdoing.

If you need to file a whistleblower complaint, call or visit your local OSHA Regional or Area Office. For more information on whistleblower protection, visit
