This poster must be posted in a conspicuous place where all employees will see it. It describes the protection whistleblowers have from their employers and how to report violations, unsafe conditions or practices or illegal acts in the workplace. Employers are required to fill out the contact information should a violation under the Whistleblower's Protection Act occur.
