whistleblower

In the employment context, a whistleblower is an employee who objects to or makes plain wrongdoing that his or her employer is committing.  Generally speaking, you are not considered a whistleblower if you object to conduct that affects just you, even if it is prohibited by an employment law statute.  That is, if you object to your boss making sexual advances in the workplace, you are not called a “whistleblower”.  That term is generally confined to individuals who report some more general form of corporate malfeasance, like fraud or threat to the public interest.
