I don't want to lose my insurance license

I am a licensed property & casualty insurance agent and in August recently obtained my life license. I have been working for an agent since May. I am still not authorized by the insurance company. I have brought this to the office manager & the owner's attention and advised him that I will not write any life products until I am authorized. Their is another agent who works in the office that is not licensed in life and actively selling life products. The owner agent also has a receptionist working in the front who is not licensed and does give insureds information on their policies. Does their not being licensed have reprecussions for my license? I am now watched very closely and I know that they are trying to fire me. If they do what rights do I have?

violation of whistleblower act

If you have complained and/or stated to your employer that you essentially will not break the law as it pertains to being licensed, when in fact you are not, and your employer takes any retaliatory action against you (i.e. demotion or termination)he is violating what is commonly known as the Whistleblower's Act.
