Judge Rules D.C. Whistleblower Protection Act Amendment Retroactive
According to the Government Accountability Project’s blog, D.C. Superior Court Judge Leonard Braman held that a recent amendment to the D.C. Whistleblower Protection Act (WPA) exempting whistleblowers from the requirement of notifying the District of a claim within six months of the adverse employment action should apply retroactively. Therefore, the notice requirement in D.C. Code §12-309 will not bar relief in pending D.C. WPA claims.
