Whistleblower Protection
The State Officials and Employees Ethics Act (5 ILCS 430/15), provides “whistle blower” protections to State employees who report, or threaten to report, wrongdoing, provide information or testify regarding wrongdoing, or assist in the enforcement of the Ethics Act. Retaliation against a State employee for reporting or providing of information of wrongdoing is strictly prohibited by the Ethics Act and may result in a violation of State law (740 ILCS 174/20.2).
