House Strengthens Whistleblower Protections for Federal Employees

Share

On January 28, 2009, the House passed the Platts-Van Hollen amendment to its economic stimulus bill, which will enhance whistleblower protections for federal employees who report on waste, fraud and abuse of federal funds.  The Platts-Van Hollen amendment which is substantially similar to H.R. 985, grants federal employees the right to a jury trial in whistleblower retaliation actions and extends whistleblower protections to federal scientists, national security whistleblowers, and transportation security officers.  In addition, the amendment eliminates the loopholes that the Federal Circuit has read into the Whistleblower Protection Act.
