The Whistleblower's Handbook
Every single day, American workers by the thousands report fraud, violations of environmental rules, health and safety hazards, and political corruption. The National Business Ethics Survey reports that 56% of workers admit to witnessing serious misconduct at work, and more than half of them take the first step to report it. But there exists a maze of confusing state and federal laws that govern whistleblowing, protect employees, and sometimes provide for large monetary rewards for whistleblowers who do the right thing. Ignorance of the proper steps to expose wrongdoing too often leads to silence, lost court cases, public embarrassment, and a failure to effect real change. But when done right, whistleblowing has strengthened democracy, protected the environment, and saved taxpayers and investors billions of dollars.  Modern whistleblower laws have created a powerful tool for effective grassroots participation.   Now, from the nation's leading whistleblower attorney, comes the first-ever consumer guide to whistleblowing. InThe Whistleblower's Handbook,Stephen Martin Kohn explains nearly all federal and state laws regarding whistleblowing. In the step-by-step bulk of the book, he also presents twenty-one rules for whistleblowers.
