What you should know about whistleblower protection

A "whistleblower" is a term used to describe an employee who comes forward to report a violation of the law or to denounce a wasteful or illegal practice by an employer. Although the term itself appears as far back as 1934 when it was used by P.G. Wodehouse in "Right Ho, Jeeves," it became more mainstream during the early 1970s after Ralph Nader, a civic activist, used the term to avoid the negative stigma associated with terms, such as "informant" or "snitch."

Michigan discrimination case to return to federal court

The United States Supreme Court ruled on Jan.12, 2015, that a discrimination lawsuit filed against the Kalamazoo County Road Commission by a former equipment superintendent can now return to federal court. The Supreme Court ruled that a 2014 decision issued by an appeals court stand. According to court records, an appeals court judge reportedly remarked that it was plausible that the man, who is Hispanic, had initially been set up to fail and that it didn't matter that he had applied for the job before.
