Enhanced Whistleblower Protections Proposed

A bill to amend and strengthen the Whistleblower Protection Act was introduced yesterday by Senator Daniel Akaka (D-HI) and several bipartisan Senate colleagues.

“Our legislation ensures that Federal whistleblowers are protected from retaliatory action when notifying the public and government leaders of waste, fraud, and abuse,” Senator Akaka said.

“If we fail to protect whistleblowers, then our efforts to improve government management, protect the public, and secure the nation will also fail.”
