Robert Kobus

In October 2005, Former Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Operations Manager, Robert Kobus, made protected disclosures to FBI senior staff that certain officials were falsifying time records. In response, Kobus was moved to a separate, isolated office in retaliation. Kobus faced internal humiliation at the hands of his FBI colleagues and supervisors, with retaliation ranging from freezing his leave request paperwork to ignoring him completely.

Through legal support from the National Whistleblower Center, Kobus was vindicated as the U.S. Justice Department determined he was retaliated against for reporting misconduct nearly nine years after his initial disclosure.
