The City’s Whistleblower Law protects City employees from retaliation for reporting misconduct, corruption, criminal activity, conflicts of interest, gross mismanagement and abuse of authority. To be protected by the Law, the City employees must make these complaints to DOI or to a member of the City Council, the Public Advocate or the Comptroller, each of whom must refer the complaints to DOI.
