Whistleblower Protections Under Federal Law: An Overview
Jon O. Shimabukuro (au); L. Paige Whitaker (au)
Legal protections for employees who report illegal misconduct by their employers have increased dramatically since the late 1970s when such protections were first adopted for federal employees in the Civil Service Reform Act of 1978. Since then, with the enactment of the Whistleblower Protection Act of 1989, Congress has expanded such protections for federal employees. It has also established whistleblower protections for individuals in certain private-sector employment through the adoption of whistleblower provisions in at least 18 federal statutes, among them the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act, and the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act). This report provides an overview of key aspects of the 18 selected federal statutes applicable to individuals in certain private-sector industries. It focuses on the protections provided to employees who believe they have been subject to retaliation, rather than on how or where alleged misconduct should be disclosed. In addition, the report includes an overview of the Whistleblower Protection Act. This is a print on demand report.
