The Employment Law Group® Law Firm Briefs Congressional Members and Staff About Whistleblower Protections
On Monday, May 12, 2008, Principal Jason Zuckerman of The Employment Law Group® law firm briefed Congressional members and staff, whistleblowers, NGOs, and the public about corporate whistleblower protections, including H.R. 4047, which would close loopholes in existing federal whistleblower protection statutes and protect employees who disclose threats to public health and safety, financial fraud, insurance fraud, or violations of environmental protection laws, food and drug safety laws, or transportation safety laws. A section-by-section analysis of the legislation from the Education and Workforce Subcommittee is available here. This briefing is part of a series of events and conferences aimed at raising awareness of whistleblower issues in Washington, D.C.
