The Bank has established a whistleblowing mechanism in order to facilitate early awareness of potential misconduct or irregularities that may arise in relation to SONIA. Detailed information regarding both the mechanism and legal protection of whistleblowers is available on the SONIA interest rate benchmark page.. Under UK whistleblowing legislation, workers who make protected disclosures enjoy certain protections against detrimental treatment by their employer. While some types of disclosure to the Bank are automatically protected in this way, disclosures in relation to SONIA are not currently automatically protected.. However, a disclosure by a worker to a person other than his or her employer (such as the Bank) can be a protected disclosure if carried out using a procedure which the workers employer has authorised the individual to use. The Bank has requested all reporters to the SMMD data collection to authorise UK employees to use the Banks whistleblowing mechanism in order to make ...
What jumped out at me immediately about this well researched and documented book by Kohn, was the revelation that through his efforts, a Mr. Bradley Birkenfeld was awarded $104 million under the IRSs whistleblower program. It was the single largest whistleblower reward paid in world history to a single individual. That should get everyones attention!.

Whistleblowing tradition in what would soon become the United States had a start in 1773 with Benjamin Franklin leaking a few letters in the Hutchinson affair. The release of the communications from royal governor Thomas Hutchinson to Thomas Whately led to a firing, a duel and arguably, both through the many general impacts of the leak and its role in convincing Franklin to join the radicals cause, the taking of another important final step toward the American Revolution. The first act of the Continental Congress in favor of what later came to be called whistleblowing came in the 1777-8 case of Samuel Shaw and Richard Marven. The two seamen accused Commander in Chief of the Continental Navy Esek Hopkins of torturing British prisoners of war. The Congress dismissed Hopkins and then agreed to cover the defense cost of the pair after Hopkins filed a libel suit against them under which they were imprisoned. Shaw and Marven were subsequently cleared in a jury trial. To be considered a whistleblower ...
A whistleblower collected 22% of $13 million in back taxes from a food services company. The whistleblower notified the state of New York that an airport food services company, Yankee Clipper Food Services I Corporation, was underpaying taxes owed to New York and fees owed to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Express Hospitality Group. Yankee Clipper runs Panini Express stores, two bars and a mobile hot dog stand and employee cafeterias at JFK, as well as the American Airlines cafeteria and catering and vending machine businesses at LaGuardia.. In his suit, the whistleblower alleged that Yankee Clipper was keeping double books. In one set of books, the company was documenting the taxes it was collecting on food sold at its restaurants at JFK Airport. In the other set, it claimed to have sold less and collected less in the way of taxes.. Based on the facts revealed by the whistleblower, Yankee Clipper Food Services ultimately pled guilty to three felonies: grand larceny in the first ...
Criminal law provides at best only partial protection to whistleblowers who are victimized for having spoken out. The measures that do exist are patchy and specific to particular situations. This chapter reviews criminal law provisions in a number of jurisdictions and considers how effective they have been in deterring and punishing the victimization of whistleblowers. One of the earliest British whistleblower protection measures drew on criminal law. In the late 19th century, John Hood, an employee of the Cambrian railway company for over 20 years, had given devastating evidence to a House of Commons Select Committee about hours of work endured by railway workers. He was promptly dismissed. The directors of the company were summoned to the Bar of the House and told, A great principle has been infringed, the principle that evidence given before this house should be free and unrestrained. The outcome was the Witnesses (Public Enquiries) Protection Act 1892, which is still in force today. The ...

Specific disclosures are important and can help to rectify breaches of supervisory law and avoid the negative consequences of such misconduct. If whistleblowers tell BaFin their names and reveal their professional or personal relationship to the supervised company, BaFin is able to communicate with them beyond the initial disclosure. However, there may be situations in which persons with particular knowledge of processes in supervised companies do not provide BaFin with information out of fear of the consequences.. BaFin has set up an electronic whistleblowing system specifically for such cases. It is not technically possible to trace disclosures made using this system and this is certified by an independent body. It is possible to set up a protected mailbox to allow follow-up communication. This can be used to ask further questions and clarify uncertain points. The whistleblowers maintain their anonymity throughout the entire correspondence. You can find more information at ...
When an employer is suspected of engaging in illegal actions and benefiting from these actions, an employee may take it upon him or herself to report this to the proper authorities. When this happens, the individual who did the reporting is called a whistleblower. Lawyers of Free Legal Shield have experience helping employees with whistleblower representation for many years. We can protect the rights of employees who are acting as the whistleblower. Qui Tam and whistleblower cases can fall under the category of class action litigation.. Whistleblower.

The Second Circuit ruled in Berman v. Neo@Ogilvy LLC that a whistleblower whose employment was terminated after he raised concerns internally at his company, rather than filing a formal complaint with the SEC, was protected from retaliation under the Dodd-Frank Act. While recognizing that the statutory protections do not clearly cover internal complainants, the Second Circuit found the SECs regulatory interpretation of the statute - that whistleblowers are protected from retaliation even if they only report their concerns internally - is entitled to deference. The Berman decision creates a circuit split on the issue of whether whistleblowers who raise concerns under Dodd-Frank only internally can avail themselves of the non-retaliation provisions of the statute. In Asadi v. G.E. Energy (USA), L.L.C., the Fifth Circuit rejected the SECs arguments and instead found that the anti-retaliation provisions of Dodd-Frank, on their face, do not extend to internal whistleblowers. The Fifth Circuit is ...

Practical advice on how companies can encourage employees to ask questions early -- to point out issues and show courage in confronting unethical or illegal practices.
The Public Interest Disclosure Act 1998 (the Act) was introduced to protect employees who are worried about wrongdoing where they work and want to blow the whistle, and therefore to encourage employees to speak out. The Act applies to most employees and includes those employed on a temporary basis or through an agency. An employee is protected against any victimisation or discrimination because they have blown the whistle (known as making a protected disclosure), and if they are they can take their employer to an employment tribunal. The legislation is technical and specific - only limited categories of disclosure qualify for protection and only if made in certain ways ...
This morning, I had the good fortune to hear an interview on the radio with the National Guardian for the NHS, Henrietta Hughes. She was there to talk about her role, which involves ensuring that NHS staff feel free to expose wrongdoing, and she is concerned that gagging orders within Settlement Agreements are destroying the confidence people have to blow the whistle if necessary.. The interview, on Radio 4s This Morning programme, outlined concerns that gagging clauses in Settlement Agreements made it hard for people to come forward, and that employees who signed such agreements are often unclear as to what they mean. Illustrations were given whereby employees thought that they were unable to talk even to their own GP or counsellor. Arguably worse still, if an employee knows of mal-practice or some occurrence which is endangering the public, they may feel unable to flag it up once they have signed such an agreement.. I have to say that this is accurate, although not the whole picture.. For ...

COSO sponsored this study, Fraudulent Financial Reporting: 1998-2007, to provide a comprehensive analysis of fraudulent financial reporting occurrences investigated by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) between January 1998 and December 2007. This study updates our understanding of fraud since COSOs 1999 issuance of Fraudulent Financial Reporting: 1987-1997. Some of the more critical findings of the present study are:. There were 347 alleged cases of public company fraudulent financial reporting from 1998 to 2007, versus 294 cases from 1987 to 1997. Consistent with the high-profile frauds at Enron, WorldCom, etc., the dollar magnitude of fraudulent financial reporting soared in the last decade, with total cumulative misstatement or misappropriation of nearly $120 billion across 300 fraud cases with available information (mean of nearly $400 million per case). This compares to a mean of $25 million per sample fraud in COSOs 1999 study. While the largest frauds of the early 2000s ...

Proving retaliation can be difficult and the burden of proof is on the nurse alleging the retaliation or discrimination. This difficulty is addressed by item (e)(1) which outlines a rebuttable presumption that if the retaliation took place within 60 days of the patient advocacy activities it is presumed to be retaliation. The rebuttable presumption prevents the defendant from simply denying the allegation and requires the defendant to present opposing evidence that it was not retaliation. Once the defendant presents their evidence, it can be evaluated and challenged by the nurse. If you are thinking this all sounds very legal, youre right. These protections are in statute but they arent automatic. Nurses must hire a lawyer and file a claim. The statute of limitations on retaliation claims is not specified in the Nurse Practice Act. In a San Antonio case, the federal court found that the Texas Nursing Practice Act is most analogous to the cause of action provided by Texas Health & Safety Code ...

A WHISTLEBLOWER will be rewarded $250,000 after giving information which led to the successful recovery of about $8 million in taxes and penalties from a company in the Western Division.. The payment, which was approved by the Fiji Revenue and Customs Authority (FRCA) board, is the highest reward so far for any whistleblower.. FRCA chief executive officer Visvanath Das, in a statement yesterday, said this reflected the authoritys commitment to clamping down tax evaders.. According to Mr Das, the case involved a company engaged in the motor vehicle industry, which was manipulating its sales record and under declaring for VAT and income taxation.. The information provided by the whistleblower then led to FRCA carrying out a detailed investigation with the sales reported in the companys tax returns and bank account, which noted major discrepancies.. The audit also revealed that the director of this company has other businesses and investment properties which were all under reported, Mr Das ...

1 BLOWING THE WHISTLE ON THE DODD-FRANK WHISTLEBLOWER PROVISIONS DAVE EBERSOLE* I. INTRODUCTION Imagine getting 10% for blowing the whistle on Madoffs $50 billion scam. Its a simple thing that will stop a lot of fraud fast. At first blush this logic may be very convincing, but whistleblowers are driven by more than just monetary incentives. 2 The emotions of Harry Markopolos, the whistleblower who tried to expose Bernie Madoffs infamous Ponzi scheme, are telling: 3 If [Madoffj contacted me and threatened me, I was going to drive down to New York and take him out. At that point it would have come down to him or me; it was as simple as that. The government would have forced me into it by failing to do its job, and failing to protect me. In that situation I felt I had no other options. I was going to kill him. 4 * Juris Doctor, The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law, expected Special thanks to Professors Paul Rose and Dale Oesterle. 1 Robert Chew, Calling All Whistleblowers!

Pentagon Papers Whistleblowers and Congressman Call for a New 9/11 Investigation 05-05-2011 • www.zerohedge.com The two main players in releasing the Pentagon Papers were Daniel Ellsberg and United States Senator Mike Gravel. Senator Gravel is the person who read the Pentagon Papers into the Congressional Record. This act made the papers public record, so that they could not be censored by the government. He was the only member of Congress courageous enough to do so. Both Ellsberg and Gravel - like many other high-level former officials in the government and intelligence services (including many well-known whistleblowers) - support a new 9/11 investigation. Ellsberg says that the case of a certain 9/11 whistleblower is far more explosive than the Pentagon Papers. (Heres some of what that whistleblower says.) He also said that the government is ordering the ...
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a natural emotional reaction to a deeply shocking and disturbing experience. It is a normal reaction to an abnormal situation. Any human being has the potential to develop PTSD. The cause is external not internal. It is a Psychiatric Injury not Mental Illness. It is not resulting from the individuals personality. The Whistleblower who is the victim of the retaliation is not inherently weak or inferior. In fact, any human being has the potential to develop PTSD. Whistleblower retaliation is extremely stressful and may lead to burnout or stress break-down - which is not the same as nervous or mental break-down; as stated above, everyone breaks down under the stress of a life altering trauma that is deeply wounding. Thus individuals suffering PTSD are injured, not mentally ill. PTSD indicates severe trauma and stress which causes a weakness in the individual, and not the reverse. This is confusing for mental health practitioners and laypersons alike. But ...
Thomas Drake, a National Security Agency whistleblower who several years ago provided information to the press about fraud, waste, and privacy abuses at the super-secret spy agency and who was prosecuted for doing so, has a warning for Edward Snowden, the 29-year-old whistleblower who on Sunday outed himself as the source of the blockbuster leaks revealing two sweeping NSA surveillance programs. (The programs, as the Guardian and the Washington Post stories based on Snowdens leaks revealed, collected records of phone calls made by Americans and intercepted internet communications made by foreigners via US tech companies.) Drake says Snowden can expect to be targeted by the full force of the United States government. And Drake should know. The Justice Department pursued Drake fiercely, charging him with violating the Espionage Act-as if he had been a spy for a foreign power. Drake maintained that he had only conveyed unclassified information to a reporter. The governments case eventually fell ...
In the 1990s, while working in the EPA New England Regional Office in Boston, Kyla reached out to PEER to address a plan to illegally build a port on the largest undeveloped island on the Eastern Seaboard - Sears Island in Maine.

Accounting practices and the role of auditors have been widely implicated in many corporate scandals. The accountants are likely to witness serious wrongdoings at their workplace, thus presenting them with a difficult choice of whether or not to whistle-blow. This study reports results of whistle-blowing intentions of the members of Certified Practising Accountants of Australia (CPA, Australia). The study provides data on a well-known obstacle (threat of retaliation) and demographic factors on accountants propensity to blow the whistle (PBW). An online survey was used to collect data. The data was analysed using a 2x3x2 (retaliation, age and gender, respectively) between-subject design. The results show a complex interaction effect of retaliation, participants age and gender on their PBW. Among the early career accountants, male accountants are more likely than female accountants to blow the whistle. Accountants in the mid-age group are not only likely to whistle-blow when there is retaliation ...
