EPA OIG Commemorates Whistleblower Appreciation Day: IG Message and Whistleblower Protection Podcast

Inspector General Sean O’Donnell pens a message to colleagues commemorating National Whistleblower Appreciation Day:

My commitment to whistleblower rights and to ensuring a safe and productive work environment for U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board employees is unwavering. Resources for employees who wish to make a protected disclosure or who believe they may have been retaliated against for engaging in protected whistleblowing activities may be found on the OIG's Whistleblower Protection site. To make a complaint, please visit our EPA OIG Hotline site.

This page also features an EPA OIG podcast on whistleblower protection and the OIG’s roles in protecting scientific integrity and investigating research misconduct.
