House of Representatives
Session of 2021 - 2022 Regular Session

To: All House members
Subject: Expanding Whistleblower Protections for All Pennsylvanians
Whether it’s a government employee discovering wasteful spending or a worker uncovering dangerous working conditions, every Pennsylvanian employee should be allowed to raise concerns about workplace conditions that violate the law without fear of retaliation. Unfortunately, this is not clear for private employees under current state law. Employees who report their concerns too often face retaliation or termination.

My legislation will establish clear whistleblower protections for ALL Pennsylvanian workers in both the public and private sectors, providing relief for workers when employers violate the law or retaliate against whistleblowers.

From warehouse workers to nurses, coal miners to teachers, and everyone in between, all Pennsylvanians deserve to feel safe at work. Please join me in supporting this legislation that would ensure that employees have adequate protections and can raise concerns about violations of the law at their workplace.
