MSPB Watch Publishes Helpful OSC Disclosure Flowcharts
November 21, 2011 - Comments Off
MSPBWatch – a blog that works to “keep them honest” at the United States Merit Systems Protection Board – released a pair of helpful flowcharts this weekend that we wanted to make sure our readers didn’t miss. The flowcharts – released in simplified and detailed form – explain the process through which a federal employee blows the whistle via the Office of Special Counsel, per 5 U.S.C. 1213. Countless whistleblower claims are defeated each year because employees that were protected whistleblowers facing actionable retaliation failed to properly report their claims. Tools like this, which help to make the tangled web of statutes comprising whistleblower law more simplified and accessible for the layperson, are always appreciated.
