Senator McCaskill Re-introduces Government Contractor Whistleblower Protection Bill

Senator McCaskill (with Senator Jim Webb co-sponsoring) re-introduced to the Senate a bill titled the Non-Federal Employee Whistleblower Protection Act of 2011 which would extend whistleblower protections to employees of federal government contractors and employees of institutions receiving federal grants, including state and local governments.  Whistleblowers who report fraud, waste, and abuse would be protected from retaliation by their employer.  For more information on federal whistleblower laws, click here.
