It National Crime Victims Awareness week. WoA believes Whistleblowers suffering retaliation should be treated like other victims.

Happy President's Day!
Remembering Lincoln who signed the False Claims Act giving "First Relators" compensation for reporting fraud against the Union.

Happy New Year! Thanks for helping us make 2018 successful.

There are two House Veterans Affairs Committee hearings today. One on claims processing and the other on the GI Bill. WoA is submitting for the record, thanks to VA insiders who know that this is a bigger problem than a computer glitch. VBA mismanagement is epic and Anti Deficiency Act violations are rampant. VBA has used Economic Opportunity money to fund reducing the backlog. Senior leadership is detailed but not held accountable. When 2 women were reassigned and wrongdoing identified, the media coverage was overwhelming, but now when it involves over 5 men, not a peep.

That's me sitting behind O'Rourke. Whistleblowers of America (WoA) submitted a statement for the record that outlined all of the complaints we've gotten on the OAWP. We facilitated a Veteran-centric Accountability meeting with the VSOs and our next step is to meet with VA on the OAWP. I am grateful to the VSOs for stepping up to help. WoA cannot take this on alone and need a community response to the accountability whistleblowers are asking for from VA.

Peter O’Rourke, the former Trump-campaign staffer who became the acting VA secretary after ousting David Shulkin is set to leave the agency as soon as this week. O’Rourke enjoyed a highly contentious relationship with the agency’s Inspector General and Congress while running the agency for a few months earlier this year. He was reported by House Democrats for perjury following a hearing where he delivered likely false statements about the Accountability Act and spurious decisionmaking on the law. [ 2,211 more words ]

The Forest Service Is Silencing Women

Thank you to the women of the Forest Service who stood up against sexual harrassment and whistleblower retaliation.

https://www.outsideonline.com/2334781/forest-service-silencing-women-harassment-discrimination

For decades, women in the Forest Service and U.S. Department of Agriculture have been trying to bring justice to those who have discriminated against them. A new investigation reveals that the inaction is due to a much larger problem: a system set up to make their complaints go away.

At the VA, a Law Meant to Discipline Executives is Being Used to Fire Low-Level Workers

Violating due process does not improve patient care. It only destabilizes the VA, and impaire morale, and hurts recruitment and retention.

https://www.thenation.com/article/at-the-va-a-law-meant-to-discipline-executives-is-being-used-to-fire-low-level-workers/

An investigation reveals that food-service workers, housekeepers, and claims processors—many veterans themselves—have lost their jobs under a new accountability law.

Yesterday was a busy day at Whistleblowers of America. We spent the afternoon with Bunker Labs and heard about mentorship from Secretary Hagel and then saw the film Delay, Deny, Hope that You Die about the burn pit exposures. It was interesting to go from a forum focused on supporting Veterans as entrepreneurs to one where sick Veterans can't get care from VA because the research doesn't support it. Glad Congressman Bilirakus was there. He supports legislation.

We submitted a statement for the joint House and Senate Veterans Affairs Committees hearing on March 14th. Thanks to over 2 dozen VA whistleblowers who contributed. Hopefully, we get included. Contact HVAC and SVAC to support us!

WoA made it into the House Committee on Veterans Affairs hearing record today with an outstanding statement from Jamie Fox who brought forth the issue of whistleblower privacy invasion. Many veterans/employees have their c-files and personnel records illegally access to discredit the whistleblower. Veterans should be given an audit trail to see who is accessing their records.

Veterans' safety a concern at facilities across the country

Whistleblowers have contacted WoA about the violence and abuse that goes on inside VA medical centers, but staff are often told to drop it when it involves a veteran. Many of the attacked employees are female, some are veterans too. VA needs to better address these behaviors.

Veterans medical centers and facilities remain the target of violence, threats, and other security-related incidents but what's being done to protect the people who visit for doctors appointments every day?

Happy birthday day to Dr. Martin Luther King. Civil Rights is still a necessary conversation today because we still face cases of discrimination and lack diversity and inclusion across many spectrums. There are protections under the law for racial and ethnic minorities, gender, disability, veterans, and other employees because we have been United in speaking truth to power! #USTOO
