New Bill Extends Whistleblower Protections to Congressional Whistleblowers

Share

Senator Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) introduced S.458, the False Claims Act Clarification Act of 2009, which would extend whistleblower protections to employees in the legislative branch who disclose information about reasonably perceived violations of any law, rule, or regulation.  The bill also amends the False Claims Act (“FCA”) by:

  • clarifying the definition of “claim” to include any request or demand for money or property whether or not the United States has title to the money or property;
  • expanding protected conduct to include disclosures made to officers, employees, and agents of the United States; and
  • extending the statute of limitations for filing a retaliation claim from 6 to 10 years.
