American Whistleblowers Live at Baruch

New York, NY
October 21, 2014

Labaton Sucharow partner Jordan A. Thomas joined a panel discussion at Baruch College's Robert Zicklin Center for Corporate Integrity as it hosted the Government Accountability Project's "American Whistleblower Tour."

This event was the first stop in the Government Accountability Project's 2014-2015 annual American Whistleblower Tour, which seeks to educate the public, particularly the future workforce, about the important role whistleblowers play in promoting government and corporate accountability. GAP's American Whistleblower Tour, by presenting the first-hand stories of historic whistleblowers who disclosed corporate fraud, will teach attendees:

  • what whistleblowing is - and isn't
  • the difficult challenges whistleblowers face when deciding to disclose wrongdoing
  • why whistleblowers must be honored and protected to maintain an effective democratic capitalistic society
  • how the current regulatory landscape both fosters and hinders whistleblower disclosures
