You must first bring these problems to the attention of legal authorities concerned. You can also complain to your supervisor in your company. But first inform the competent authority, for example, your employer rejects toxic sludge into the groundwater, and blogging.

4 – If you work in the administration

If you are a civil servant, blogging about what happens is protected by freedom of expression. In addition, it is in the public interest to know how taxes are used. Obviously, do not post confidential or classified information.
