Protection Act 
“Whistleblower Act”

employer or another employer, with whom there is a business relationship, that the employee reasonably 
believes is in violation of a law, or a rule or regulation issued under the law, or, in the case of an employee 
who  is  a  licensed  or  certified  health  care  professional,  reasonably  believes  constitutes  improper  quality  of 
patient care;
b. Provides information to, or testifies before, any public body conducting an investigation, hearing or inquiry into 
any violation of law, or a rule or regulation issued under the law by the employer or another employer, with 
whom there is a business relationship, or, in the case of an employee who is a licensed or certified health care 
professional, provides information to, or testifies before, any public body conducting an investigation, hearing 
or inquiry into quality of patient care; or
c. Provides information involving deception of, or misrepresentation to, any shareholder, investor, client, patient, 
customer, employee, former employee, retiree or pensioner of the employer or any\
 governmental entity.
d. Provides information regarding any perceived criminal or fraudulent activity, policy or practice of deception 
or misrepresentation which the employee reasonably believes may defraud any shareholder, investor, client, 
patient, customer, employee, former employee, retiree or pensioner of the employer or any governmental 
entity.
e. Objects to, or refuses to participate in, any activity, policy or practice which the employee reasonably 
believes:
(1) is in violation of a law, or a rule or regulation issued under the law or, if  the employee is a licensed  
  or certified health care professional, constitutes improper quality of patient care;
(2) is fraudulent or criminal; or
(3) is incompatible with a clear mandate of public policy concerning the public health, safety or welfare 
  or protection of the environment. N.J.S.A. 34:19-3.
2.  The protection against retaliation, when a disclosure is made to a publi\
c body, does not apply unless the employee 
has brought the activity, policy or practice to the attention of a supervisor of the employee by written notice and 
given the employer a reasonable opportunity to correct the activity, policy or practice. However, disclosure is not 
required where the employee reasonably believes that the activity, policy or practice is known to one or more 
supervisors of the employer or where the employee fears physical harm as a result of the disclosure, provided 
that the situation is emergency in nature.

el  empleado  tiene  motivos  fundados  para  pensar  que  violan  alguna  ley,  o  en  el  caso  de  un  trabajador 
licenciado o certificado de la salud y que tiene motivos fundados para pensar que se trata de una manera 
inadecuada de atención al paciente;
b. Facilite información o preste testimonio ante cualquier agencia pública que conduzca una investigación, 
audiencia o indagación sobre la violación de alguna ley, regla o reglamento que el empleador o algún otro

inadecuada al paciente;
(2)  es fraudulenta o delictiva; o
(3)  es incompatible con algún mandato establecido por las directrices púb\
licas relacionadas con la 
salud pública, la seguridad o el bienestar o la protección del medio ambiente. Artículo 34:19-3 de 
las Leyes comentadas de New Jersey de protección del empleado consciente (N.J.S.A., por sus 
siglas en inglés)
2.  No  se  puede  acoger  a  la  protección  contra  la  represalia,  cuando  se  hace  una  divulgación  a  un  organismo 
público, a no ser que el empleado le informe al empleador de tal actividad, política o norma a través de un aviso 
por escrito y le haya dado al empleador una oportunidad razonable para corregir tal actividad, política o norma.  
Sin embargo, no es necesaria la divulgación en los casos en que el empleado tenga indicios razonables para 
creer que un supervisor o más de un supervisor del empleador tienen conocimiento de tal actividad, política o 
norma o en los casos en los que el empleado teme que tal divulgación pueda traer como consecuencia daños 
físicos a su persona siempre y cuando la naturaleza de la situación sea la de una situación de emergencia.
Este aviso se debe exponer a la vista de todos.
Anualmente, patronos con 10 o más empleados, deberán distribuir notificación de esta ley a todos sus empleados.
