Changes coming for Whistleblower laws?

The House Committee on Education and Labor issued a release addressing the nation's whistleblower laws and a report issued by the Government Accountability Office.  The release, based on the GAO report, states that whistle blowers are not adequately protected from employer retaliation, that resources are inadequate including an inadequate means to track whistle blower complaints, and that the whistle blower regulations are an unworkable patchwork.

The release indicates greater funding for enforcement is likely and that House members plan on reintroducing the Private Sector Whistleblower Protection Streamlining Act (click here for the original announcement relating to this bill).
