Whistleblowing by Federal Employees: Barriers and Protections


Bernard L. Gallagher (Editor)

Series: Government Procedures and Operations
BISAC: POL019000

For more than three decades, the law has recognized the importance of encouraging Federal employees to come forward with reports of any violation of any law, rule, or regulation, or gross mismanagement, a gross waste of funds, an abuse of authority, or a substantial and specific danger to public health or safety. This book explores the extent to which Federal employees perceive wrongdoing, the extent to which they report the wrongdoing they see, and what factors influence their decisions to remain silent or to blow the whistle.
