GAP is proud to announce the release of the single most comprehensive publication ever created about corporate whistleblowing, The Corporate Whistleblower's Survival Guide: A Handbook for Committing the Truth. Published by Berrett-Koehler, this step-by-step guide details key information that potential business whistleblowers should know before, during, and after blowing the whistle.
Topics include: whistleblowing strategies that have proved successful; common pitfalls; key survival tips; typical retaliatory tactics; working with the media; available resources and help groups; and current legal protections, just to name a few.
The authors of the book, GAP Legal Director Tom Devine and former GAP litigator Tarek F. Maassarani, will be speaking at an online event this Thursday alongside notable whistleblowers from the nuclear and healthcare industries. Noted health care whistleblower Wendell Potter will participate.
Praise for the book has been overwhelming. Many high-profile whistleblowers and good government advocates have reviewed the book and hailed its importance for truth-tellers everywhere. The Corporate Whistleblower's Survival Guide is filled with essential tips for navigating every step of the whistleblowing process -- from detailing what individuals should do if they are simply considering taking action to expose wrongdoing, to navigating the storm of retaliation that inevitably follows.
Thursday Event Details
This Thursday evening, April 21, GAP and Georgetown University's Law School will be hosting an online event featuring a discussion between the authors and noted whistleblowers whose disclosures play an important role in current pivotal issues.
