POGO Testifies on Rights of National Security EmployeesTweet
December 4, 2013
A recent court decision stripped federal employees in national security sensitive positions of their right to appeal an adverse personnel action. This decision could create a toxic environment for whistleblowers where they would have no way to fight back against retaliation for legal whistleblowing.
Recenlty, Angela Canterbury, POGO's Director of Public Policy, testified before the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Subcomittee on this terrible court decision. See her testimony above, and then you can read her full testimony or watch a video of the full hearing.
