Whistleblower lawyer Jason Zuckerman will speak at the annual conference of the National Employment Lawyers Association on a panel addressing “Strategies for Representing Whistleblowers in the Federal Government.”
After a 13-year legislative campaign, Congress finally and unanimously passed the Whistleblower Protection Enhancement Act (WPEA), which broadens the scope of protected conduct under the Whistleblower Protection Act (WPA), authorizes uncapped compensatory damages in WPA actions, establishes all-circuit review, and expands Individual Right of Action rights. Our speakers will discuss the impact of the WPEA, offer tips for representing whistleblowers before the U.S. Office of Special Counsel and the Merit Systems Protection Board, and discuss the role of Inspectors General in investigating whistleblower disclosures and assisting whistleblowers.
Zuckerman Law represents federal employee whistleblowers in Whistleblower Protection Act claims before the U.S. Office of Special Counsel and Merit Systems Protection Board, and also represents whistleblowers in Congressional investigations and Inspector General investigations. Zuckerman has lectured and written extensively about federal whistleblower rights and protections, including an article summarizing the Whistleblower Protection Enhancement Act and a paper discussing the Office of Special Counsel’s role in protecting whistleblowers.
