A whistleblower is an individual, usually someone who is part of an organization, who brings to light the wrongdoing taking place within the organization. Usually this wrongdoing is revealed by the whistleblower as misconduct that violates laws or regulations and constitutes a threat to public interest. Examples of this might be fraud, health or safety issues, or corruption associated with individuals within the group. A whistleblower may make his or her claims internally to people within the organization or externally to law enforcement agencies, regulators, the media, or other groups concerned with the issues that the whistleblower raises. Because of his or her actions, a whistleblower may face reprisals, from the organization, from other groups, or under law.

In the California False Claims Act, whistleblowers are protected from retaliation by employers. Under Section 12653 of this Act, an employer may not make a rule that prohibits an employee from disclosing information to the government. If an employee has disclosed information, the employer is prohibited from discharging, demoting, suspending, threatening, harassing, or otherwise discriminating against that employee.
