An upcoming appeals case may seriously threaten whistleblower protections. Already retaliated against, threatened, harassed and intimidated regardless of the laws protecting them, whistleblowers may be in more danger than ever depending on how this appeals case turns out.

Since 1979, Tom has assisted over 7,000 whistleblowers in defending themselves against retaliation and in making real differences on behalf of the public. In 2015 he won the first U.S. Supreme Court test of the Whistleblower Protection Act. Tom has been a leader in the campaigns to pass or defend 33 major national or international whistleblower laws. Tom has authored numerous books, including The Corporate Whistleblower’s Survival Guide: A Handbook for Committing the Truth, which won the 2011 Frankfurt Book Fair “International Business Book of the Year” award. Tom has been selected as one of Washington DC’s top employment lawyers for the last seven years by Washingtonian magazine.
