Government Provides Whistleblowers New Tools for National Whistleblower Day

July 30 was National Whistleblower Day in the United States. It’s a day to celebrate the brave employees who provide information on waste, fraud and wrongdoing in their agencies and companies. As a way to commemorate the day, the Council of the Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency released brand new resources to help whistleblowers report their information and protect themselves against retaliation.

The council put out an initial version of a whistleblower resource page it had previously announced was in development. The page offers a number of methods for federal contractors or employees to report infractions they discover and learn more about the process of blowing the whistle.

The resource received bipartisan support from the Senate and House Appropriations Subcommittees on Financial Services and General Government. Numerous lawmakers remarked on the day’s celebrations about the important role whistleblowers play in the accountability of federal agencies and organizations, and how crucial it is to protect them and their rights.

Seek an attorney when making a whistleblower report

There has never been a better time to act as a whistleblower in the United States. The federal government continues to afford more and more protections and resources to whistleblowers, as well as incentives for them to come forward and report what they know. Some whistleblower awards can even be worth millions of dollars when the sanctions resulting from their information become large enough.

If you are aware of any wrongdoing within your agency or workplace, it is important to consult an experienced whistleblower attorney at Kardell Law Group to best proceed with your case.

In his new book, "Standing Up to China: How a Whistleblower Risked Everything for His Country," former client & Author, Ashley Yablon, quotes Attorney Steve Kardell about Whistelblower Law.
  • "Steve Kardell was terrific in representing me in some very adversarial discussions with Citigroup and also later represented me in my testimony before the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission."  -Richard Bowen, Citigroup Whistleblower

  • "Incredible knowledge of employee related concerns and equally brilliant knowledge of health care regulations, standards of practice. I would recommend this firm to anyone."  -V.B.

  • "Reaching out to Steve Kardell was the best decision I made. His ability to provide immediate insight and direction was very powerful, and a huge relief during a very stressful time period. For anyone struggling with a whistleblower situation, I would highly recommend at least speaking with Steve. After a 10 minute call with him, I had a better understanding of what I was dealing with. Even better, he gave me some immediate hope. In the end Steve did a better job than I thought was possible. Steve was able to get in contact with people in my organization, that I didn’t have access to. Because of his years of experience, he already has contacts in many organizations in Dallas. The entire situation was handled peacefully. I was impressed by his ability to “keep the peace”–rather than creating a battle with the organization. The reason I didn’t reach out to a lawyer initially, was because I thought it would mean an immediate end to any hope of a positive relationship with the company. Steve was able to address my concerns, and in the end I was able to continue to work for them."  -KS

  • "Never thought my career would end like it did after 30 years of service. I was part of the first round of the so called reduction of force. I asked myself how can I be part of this with 30 years of seniority. How did they pick these 90 plus employees? Now, the culture of this organization made you question every decision they made. It wasn’t what you knew it’s was a culture of who you know. Nonetheless, I did not accept their severance package. I immediately starting looking for an attorney who would take on my case. After the initial call to Steve I had hope again. He was open and honest about everything and reassured me he would do his best for me, and he did. I had an awesome outcome. Thanks Steve you’re the best."  -S.S.
