Shout Out to New Whistleblower Protection Law Blog

ZuckermanAs a firm believer and advocate for employee whistleblower rights, I am pleased to welcome to the blogosphere, Whistleblower Protection Law Blog, run by Zuckerman Law (and in particular, Jason Zuckerman).  The blog  focuses on developments in whistleblower law from a whistleblower advocate’s perspective.

Jason has been around whistleblower law practice in a number of different capacities.  He has litigated whistleblower cases in private practice for about a decade and then served as Senior Legal Advisor the Special Counsel at the U.S. Office of Special Counsel, an independent agency charged with protecting whistleblowers in the federal government.  In addition, he was appointed by former Secretary of Labor Solis to serve on the Whistleblower Protection Advisory Committee, which advises and makes recommendations to the Secretary of Labor to improve the fairness, efficiency, effectiveness, and transparency of OSHA's administration of whistleblower protections.  

You can find Jason's bio and publications on his website.  Check out this great new blog!

It is important to make sure that whistleblowers are protected, especially when they are bring to light bad practices in government that are unethical in one way or another. Secrets are often kept even if everyone doesn't agree with what's going on because they're afraid of what might happen if they come out and expose the problems in their organization. No one wants to be that person, but it is sometimes necessary for this to happen, especially when corruption has become very bad in a department or company. Making sure that good attorneys such as Jason Zuckerman are helping protect whistleblowers is important to help people not be afraid to speak up about crimes being committed on a daily basis.
