DoD Whistleblowers Get Little Support from Inspector General’s Office
An investigation conducted by the Associated Press reveals that in the past six years, more than 90 percent of Department of Defense (“DoD”) whistleblower retaliation cases have been dismissed by the Inspector General’s office. According to a study by the Associated Press, DoD investigators believe that many legitimate whistleblower claims are prematurely dismissed because of a demoralized work environment in the Military Reprisal Investigations (“MRI”) unit of the Inspector General’s office. According to a government survey conducted by the Corporate Leadership Council, only five percent of MRI personnel take whistleblower complaints seriously. The Employment Law Group® law firm is hopeful that a new administration will change the culture at DoD IG and protect DoD whistleblowers.
