There Aren’t Any Hallmark Cards for Whistleblowers… Yet!

Well National Whistleblower Appreciation Day came and went July 30th, without much fanfare or appreciation from most.
Still, the fact that there is such a designated day is a step in the right direction. Senators Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Ron Wyden (D-Ore), and their bipartisan  Senate Whistleblower Protection Caucus led the charge  and the U.S. Senate passed the resolution on July 7th, “to honor whistleblowers for the critical role they play in protecting the country against fraud and misconduct.”
Interestingly, July 30th was chosen because on that date in 1778, the first whistleblower law was “inked.”
