This program will provide an overview of the different types of whistleblowing programs available in the United States and the extra-territorial reach of those programs, together with a general discussion of select international programs. The program will discuss the gaps in the current programs, how those gaps impact the two different ways in which the whistleblowing laws protects critical rights: first, protection of the rights of the whistleblowers themselves - including protection from both economic and employment repercussions, including blacklisting - and, second, how the whistleblowing laws are used to protect our collective rights, particularly in areas like public health information, food safety, environmental protection, and prisoners' rights. Program attendees will learn the basics of the available whistleblowing programs; best practices in the development of such programs; and how to identify key considerations relevant to potential whistleblowing clients.
