Whistleblower Retaliation

Whistleblower retaliation is a type of prosecutor misconduct that involves taking adverse action against a person who has reported or is suspected of reporting illegal or unethical behavior by a prosecutor or other public official. This may include termination, demotion, reassignment, or other forms of retaliation, and can be considered a violation of the individual's right to free speech and their right to report corruption without fear of retribution.
