The Whistleblower’s Handbook: A Step-by-Step Guide to Doing What’s Right and Protecting Yourself

whistleblowers handbookWikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange has announced he will appeal the ruling by a London judge to extradite him to Sweden for questions stemming from allegations of sexual assault and rape last August. Judge Riddle dismissed the defense’s argument that Assange would not receive a fair trial because of his work through the whistleblowing organization. Swedish authorities also claimed he would be protected from ultimately being extradited to the US on separate charges relating to Wikileaks’ publication of U.S. government documents—an offense carrying a possibility of the death penalty. Assange characterized the trial as a “European Arrest Warrant system run amok.” Meanwhile, today marks the 278th day of solitary confinement for Private First Class Bradley Manning, who is being held at U.S. Marine Corps Base Quantico in Virginia. Manning is charged with allegedly providing WikiLeaks with classified video depicting the murders of civilians by U.S. Apache helicopter gunfire in New Baghdad in 2007. Whistleblowing, however, is not confined to international war crimes. Our guest today is the Executive Director of the National Whistleblower Center. Stephen Martin Kohn is a leading attorney specializing in representing whistleblowers. In his new book, “The Whistleblower’s Handbook: A Step-by-Step Guide to Doing What’s Right and Protecting Yourself,” Kohn provides potential whistleblowers with 21 rules, including how to navigate the maze of federal and state laws that provide protection to those who witness misconduct in the workplace. And with no end in sight to the relentless corporately funded assaults on government regulation, concerned citizens continue to emerge as democracy’s last line of defense.

    “And with no end in sight to the relentless corporately funded assaults on government regulation”

    Not based on facts. Corporations actually lobby for MORE regulation (because that eliminates competition, but relatively barely harms them). Government regulation is the source of ALL large-scale abuse.
