|Renowned Whistleblower Expert Available for Interviews in Pittsburgh|
Stephen M. Kohn will be in Pittsburgh and available for interviews regarding the most recent developments in whistleblower protections.
NWC Executive Director Stephen M. Kohn was directly involved in the efforts to have Congress protect corporate whistleblowers and has met with each of the five SEC Commissioners regarding the proposed whistleblower rules. Mr. Kohn is also the author of The Whistleblower's Handbook: A Step-by-Step Guide to Doing What's Right and Protecting Yourself (Lyons Press, 2011), which explains how whistleblowers can qualify for large monetary rewards. As of 2010, whistleblowers have been paid $2.7 billion in rewards under the False Claims Act.
Over the past 27 years, Mr. Kohn has also represented many of America's most controversial and important whistleblowers, including Bunnatine "Bunny" Greenhouse (who blew the whistle on the no-bid contracts awarded to Halliburton for the Reconstruction of Iraq), Linda Tripp (in her Privacy Act complaint concerning the government's illegal release of personal information about Ms. Tripp) and Dr. Frederic Whitehurst (who disclosed widespread forensic fraud in the FBI crime lab and exposed misconduct in the World Trade Center and Oklahoma City bombing cases).
