Whistleblower TV Reporter

June 15th, 2021
Whistleblower Law

An employee blowing the whistle on unethical business practices often fears repercussions are likely, but bravely steps out to speak up about the problems, regardless.

This makes the June 15 on-air announcement by a Fox News reporter in Texas that she was being “muzzled” by her bosses to keep certain information from viewers and has been recording conversations with them for non-profit activist group Project Veritas, even more brave, as it happened in full public view.
Fox 26 Houston reporter Ivory Hecker started out her on-air story on the impact of the heat wave in Texas with the announcement, asking viewers to tune in the following day, when she plans to release recordings of what “goes on behind the scenes at Fox, because it applies to you, the viewers.”

Legal Protections for Whistleblowers


State and Federal laws make it unlawful for employers to retaliate against employees who “blow the whistle” on their employer’s illegal or fraudulent practices to outside agencies. Particularly when a whistleblower is reporting the employer is misusing government funds, federal law protects the whistleblower from retaliation in any form. Denial of benefits; having hours cut or demotion; termination and withholding pay are retaliatory practices that are illegal under federal law. Filing suit against the employer can win back lost wages, reinstate the previous position, pay for damages and cover attorney’s fees for the whistleblower.
