Book News Annotation:

Designed for corporate employees considering exposing corrupt or illegal practices within their workplaces, this comprehensive guide provides practical advice about the legal, ethical and political ramifications of corporate whistleblowing. The material covers the motivations for whistleblowing, methods for collecting information and safeguarding sources, who to expose information to, how to get help and what to expect from employers, co-workers, regulators and the public. Additional portions of the work deal with the political landscape of corporate reform since the Sabanes-Oxley act and include recommendations for political and corporate leaders for reforming the whistleblowing process and adapting company policies to accept whistleblowing as a tool for improving accountability and governance within organizations. The final chapter of the book provides a step-by-step whistleblowing toolkit for employees. Devine is the legal director of the Government Accountability Project, a whilstleblower's protection organization and Maassarani is a professor of law at George Washington University.

Synopsis:

From Erin Brockovich to Enron, whistleblowers who “challenge abuses of power that betray the public trust” have proven to be an unfortunate necessity in modern business culture. Their efforts to report crimes, fraud, and dangers to public health and safety have saved millions of lives and billions of dollars of shareholder value - and had we heeded the warnings of whistleblowers, perhaps disasters such as the Bernie Madoff scandal and the Lehman Brothers meltdown could have been averted.

Recent federal legislation in finance and health reform have cemented legal protections and mechanisms for whistleblowing. This book provides a thorough guide and history to the whistleblower's legal rights. The ultimate survival guide, it provides advice on getting help and finding allies, warns that retaliation is often the reward for ""committing the truth"" and shows how to weather the storm. With extensive legal texts, sample letters, resources, and information on upcoming whistleblower reforms, this is the ultimate source on the subject.
