A whistleblower statute is a law that protects employees and sometimes other workers when they complain about misconduct at a company or government agency.

An example is the California Business and Professional Code 2056, which is based on AB 1676 (Margolin, 3/4/1993). This encourages physicians to report misconduct to authorities and gives them protection against retaliation by health care organizations such as medical staffs and governing entities. The California Medical Association (CMA) used this law in connection with the Potvin v. Met Life case.
