Special Counsel Hampton Dellinger to Speak at National Whistleblower Day Celebration

WASHINGTON, D.C. | June 27, 2024 — National Whistleblower Center (NWC) is happy to announce that Special Counsel Hampton Dellinger will be speaking at the National Whistleblower Day 2024 celebration held on Capitol Hill on July 30.

Dellinger heads the Office of Special Counsel (OSC), an independent agency that protects federal employees from prohibited personnel practices, including whistleblower retaliation, and investigates whistleblower disclosures about wrongdoing in federal agencies.

Last week, Dellinger announced his support for a permanent National Whistleblower Day, penning a letter to Congress calling for legislation on the matter.

“The establishment of a permanent Whistleblower Appreciation Day reinforces the longstanding bipartisan consensus that whistleblowers serve an invaluable role in our government,” Dellinger said. “By dedicating a day to these brave public servants, we not only honor the contributions of current whistleblowers, but we show potential whistleblowers that their sacrifices will not go unnoticed or unappreciated. And we make clear that retaliation against a whistleblower will not be tolerated.”
