Federal employees must know their rights under whistleblower laws

The New York Times published opinion article by a member of the Trump Administration describing efforts by federal employees to prevent and oppose misconduct by the Administration.  The Administration has since launched an inquiry to find and intimidate employees that may be whistleblowers.  These actions demonstrate how important it is that federal employees know their rights under federal whistleblower laws.  These protections are broad, covering a wide range of disclosures related to government misconduct. Even federal employees who did not blow the whistle, but are perceived to have done so, are protected by the Whistleblower Protection Act.

Whether a federal employee is actually protected under whistleblower laws depends heavily on the circumstances.  Those that feel they have been targeted as actual or perceived whistleblowers should consider the options available to them, including contacting the U.S. Office of Special Counsel.  Federal employees looking to determine their particular rights under federal whistleblower protections should consult an attorney, and can contact Kator, Parks, Weiser & Harris, PLLC.
