In a presentation to the 2013 American Bar Association Federal Sector Labor & Employment Law Committee, Jason Zuckerman discussed the Whistleblower Protection Enhancement Act (WPEA), which has significantly enhanced the whistleblower rights of federal employees. Zuckerman discussed changes to the scope of protected conduct, the availability of uncapped compensatory damages, the expansion of the individual right of action appeal option, the non-disclosure agreement provisions of the WPEA, OSC’s enhanced authority to pursue disciplinary action, and procedural enhancements to the Whistleblower Protection Act.
The whistleblower protection lawyers at Zuckerman Law represent employees in whistleblower protection and whistleblower retaliation claims nationwide.
