"About to whistle blow" is different from actually "whistleblowing". Unfortunately, precision is key with employment law matters. New York's whistleblower law was enhanced recently but it still requires blowing the whistle somewhere. Did you have a reasonable belief that a law was being broken and did you report that either to your employer or to some outside entity after which you were retaliated against? I just spoke with an employee who complained about discrimination after the employee was being investigated by the employer. Luckily that employee has union protection but timing is everything.
