Our Work - Whistleblower ProtectionsTweet
Whistleblowers play a vital role in exposing corruption and other misconduct by the federal government and its contractors. The public relies on these brave and honest employees to blow the whistle on wasteful spending, lax safety or security practices, dangerous products, and other abuses. Unfortunately, whistleblowers are almost always reprimanded, fired, and/or harassed, even if they have not “gone public” and even after their allegations are proven correct. POGO works to strengthen laws and regulations to protect these people from intimidation and retaliation.
