I was employed at a sleep lab which is an IDTF. We were accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM). Several months after receiving accreditation I realized that my facility was not in compliance with all of the accreditation standards set forth by AASM. I addressed these issues with the lab manager on three separate occasions, and each time my concerns were blown off. So I filed a complaint with AASM. A month after my manager received the complaint, I was terminated for a fabricated allegation of insubordination. This is a separate issue.
My question is, do I qualify as a whistleblower? Everything I've read about whistleblower protection seems to only apply when its reported to a government agency laws are broken Could this be considered a violation of public policy?
