Not every workplace is friendly. There will be times when tempers will flare and unpleasant words are exchanged. However, it is never acceptable for an employer to make verbal or physical threats against an employee. The term “Whistleblower” refers to a worker that reports unethical or unlawful conduct by their employer. As a result, many whistleblowers are threatened with a demotion or termination and in some extreme cases bodily harm.
