Q & A – Should I include a whistleblower policy in my employee handbook?

Employee HandbookQ. Should I include a whistleblower policy in my employee handbook?

A. It is more common today than in the past. If you are a publicly traded company, or if you are a contract with a publicly traded company, you must have a whistleblower policy. Of course all employers must not discharge an employee who complains of unlawful conduct.
