Sunday Read: 2022 in Review

Recognizing Tesla Whistleblowers

In May, we explained the whistleblower situation at Tesla and our growing concern about the way CEO Elon Musk’s history of mocking whistleblowers could impact whistleblowers in the tech industry upon his takeover of Twitter.

Stopping Russian Oligarchs

In April, we discussed the importance of proposed amendments to the Anti-Money Laundering Act of 2020 (AML Act) and the critical role whistleblowers play in ensuring the success of recent sanctions against Russia.

Recognizing Wildlife Whistleblowers

In March, we celebrated World Wildlife Day and published a Sunday Read focused on Wildlife Whistleblowers. On March 3, 1973, the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora(“CITES”) was adopted by signatories including the United States. CITES is one of the oldest and most widely signed conservation treaties in the world, and created a plan for sustainable practices years before climate change become an issue of popular debate. To foster awareness of the importance of wildlife conservation, the United Nations (UN) declared March 3rd World Wildlife Day (“WWD”). National Whistleblower Center joins the UN in recognizing the value of wildlife protections.

Concerning Trends for the False Claims Act

In February, we discussed a concerning trend regarding the False Claims Act (FCA) — one of the United States’ strongest laws preventing the misuse of public funds — following the U.S. Department of Justice’s (DOJ) announcement that it had collected more than $5.6 billion from FCA lawsuits in Fiscal Year (FY) 2021.

Whistleblowers and the Media

In January, we outlined some of the ways whistleblowers have effectively raised awareness through electronic media outlets and how doing so creates grave risks for whistleblowers.
