Protection for Whistleblowers

Remember last summer when Worldcom was in the headlines – the multi-billion dollar scandal that sent the stock market into a tailspin? If you’ll recall, several Worldcom employees stepped up to say they sensed something was amiss, but their supervisors shut them down. One would have hoped that with all the bad press received by Worldcom, other organizations would have learned to listen to whistleblowers.

But still, the problem remains. The other day I received an email from a Daily Dose subscriber who knows of a municipality in Washington State in which a city employee blew the whistle when a building was being torn down that was loaded with asbestos. Now that employee is being harassed.

For those out there who don’t want to be eaten alive just for standing up for what’s right, help is available. The National Whistleblower Legal Defense and Education Fund operates an Attorney Referral Service to provide legal referrals to whistleblowers in search of competent counsel.

Any whistleblower getting harassed can find out their legal rights by visiting whistleblowers.org, and can request help from the Attorney Referral Service by filling out a request form. There’s no reason to get punished for doing what’s right.
