This book provides an overview of federal whistleblower and anti-retaliation laws. In general, these laws protect employees who report misconduct by their employers or who engage in various protected activities, such as participating in an investigation of filing a complaint. In recent years, Congress has expanded employee protections for a variety of private-sector workers.

Eleven of the forty laws reviewed in this book were enacted after 1999. Among these laws are the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act, and the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. This book focuses on key aspects of the federal whistleblower and anti-retaliation laws. For each law, the book summarizes the activities that are protected, how the law’s protections are enforced, whether the law provides a private right of action, the remedies prescribed by the law, and the year the law’s whistleblower or anti-retaliation provisions were adopted and amended.
