Why do whistleblowers need protection?

The term "whistleblower" may or may not be familiar to Rhode Island residents. In a legal context, a whistleblower is someone who has reported some form of wrongdoing, usually by an employer. As might be expected, most organizations or agencies do not react well to having their "dirty laundry" exposed to examination, either by the pubic or regulatory authorities. Because of this, the federal government, as well as many states, have enacted laws that are meant to protect these whistleblowers.
