Although the term "whistle blower" was originally used to describe an employee who reported illegal actions of a company or corporation that was defrauding the government, over time the definition has expanded to include any employee who reports corporate or business crimes, committed without the victim's knowledge. This type of action has the potential for resulting in adverse, retaliatory conduct targeted at the employee, by the employer who has been implicated for wrongful conduct.

Muslim Employees Face Increasing Discrimination

Incidents of discrimination against Muslims in the workplace across the U.S. are on the rise.

Several recent high profile cases show similar patterns of discriminatory activity.
