Whistleblower bill draws anger, praise from various group

Bill Bransford, partner at Shaw Bransford & Roth P.C., a federal employment law firm, was interviewed on Federal News Radio's Federal Drive show to discuss pending legislation in the Senate that would clarify rules and protection for whistleblowers. The interview is available here.

Excerpt: The Whistleblower Protection Act (S. 372) is pending in the Senate and seeks to clarify the rules and protections that cover whistleblowers. Some, however, think it will have the opposite effect, and it's drawing fire from some whistleblower groups.

Frederick Whitehurst is with the National Whistleblowers Center and has written a letter of opposition to the bill. He also blew the whistle on forensic fraud in an FBI crime lab back in 1993.
