  • Federal Employee Whistleblowers Denied Due Process Rights

    Federal employee whistleblowers are being denied basic due process rights by the failure of Congress to permit these courageous workers to bring their case to federal court. 

    Under current law, federal employees are blocked from having their cases heard in federal district court, and instead have to go before the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB) —a three-person body appointed by the President. Whistleblowers are judged by the very political officials they are blowing the whistle on!

    TAKE ACTION! Demand that Congress grants federal employee whistleblowers the same access to an independent court review, as state and local government employees and corporate employees.

    Although the MSPB procedure has been harshly criticized over the years, things have become worse. As reported in today's Washington Post, President Trump has failed to nominate members to the Board, thus denying the right of federal whistleblowers to have their cases decided. The steadily growing backlog of 660 cases, is leaving hundreds of people in limbo with no resolution in sight.

    Without federal court access, it will take whistleblowers years to obtain decisions from the Board.

    TAKE ACTION! Give federal employee whistleblowers the right to file cases in federal court!
