If you expose the fraudulent conduct of your former employer, you may face former employer may sue you for defamation.  Truth is always a defense to defamation, but you still may face a lawsuit until you prove in court the truth of your claim. You should check your retirement pension or payment plan for any clauses that may cause you to lose your retirement payments if you expose your former employer of fraudulent conduct without proof of the truth of your claim.
