You deserve protection under the law when you uncover fraudulent behavior at work. Previously, it was difficult for a federal government contractor or subcontractor to receive these protections. Recent changes to the law have expanded the types of protections available to employees working under a federal government contract.
For federal government contracts signed after July 1, 2013, an employee can report illegal behavior to his or her employer and be protected from retaliation. The new law also extends these types of protections to subcontractors.
