Senate Committee Approves Greater Protections for Whistle-Blowers

by Rick Turoczy on April 14, 2005

These are tough times for federal employees who blow the whistle on waste, fraud and abuse. Their cases take months to investigate; they often face reprisals from bosses, and once in court, they find that the protections granted by Congress are not all that strong. In an effort to strengthen those protections, the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee approved a bipartisan bill that supporters hope will encourage employees to step forward when they spot wrongdoing in government offices.

“Strengthening whistle-blower protections is more than just an employee protection issue. It promotes good government,” Sen. Daniel K. Akaka (D-Hawaii), a chief sponsor of the bill, said in a statement.
