An Inside Look at Whistleblowing

In case you missed it, be sure to listen to the Friday, December 14th episode of FEDtalk for a fascinating look into the federal whistleblowing process.  The founders of Whistleblower Aid, John Tye and Mark Zaid, joined host Debra Roth for an informative discussion. 

John Tye, an attorney and the executive director of Whistleblower Aid, was a whistleblower himself who legally reported his concerns about the NSA.  Mark Zaid, an attorney experienced in representing federal workers in matters including whistleblowing, helped Mr. Tye found Whistleblower Aid to help others like him lawfully report government misconduct.  Whistleblower Aid is a non-profit, pro bono law firm that aims to help potential whistleblowers follow their conscience without risking their careers or even their freedom.

Whistleblower Aid says it “help[s] government employees and private-sector workers uphold their oath without breaking the law or exposing themselves to criminal prosecution," also providing "lawful alternatives to illicit leaking."
