*Block jury trials for federal employees *Block whistleblowers from accessing U.S. Courts of Appeal that are considered more "liberal," such as the 9th Circuit *Empowers, for the first time, the politically appointed Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB) to summarily dismiss whistleblower claims without a hearing
Stephen M. Kohn: For the second time this year, I am writing to you with pride to announce a new publication. You may remember the March release of The Whistleblower's Handbook. I wrote the Handbook after 28 years of working with employees who had inadvertently stymied their own attempts to reveal misconduct before arriving at the National Whistleblowers Center. The Handbook is designed to be a compass for these employees
In the few short months since the Handbook was published, laws changed. Keeping with the NWC's mission to protect whistleblowers, I leapt into action, compiling an updated version of the Handbook. I set out to answer common questions about the new Dodd-Frank Act, which changed the rules for obtaining rewards from the SEC and for blowing the whistle on violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). _________________________________
