Poster: Whistleblower Protection Ombudsman for the EPA OIG

The Whistleblower Protection Enhancement Act of 2012 Exit was signed into law on November 27, 2012. The Act strengthens protection for federal employees who blow the whistle on waste, fraud, and abuse in government operations. 

The Whistleblower Protection Ombudsman’s role is to educate agency employees about prohibitions on retaliation for protected disclosures, and educate agency employees who have made or are contemplating making a protected disclosure about the rights and remedies against retaliation for protected disclosures.

You may download or print the OIG Whistleblower Protection Ombudsman poster (8.5 x 11 PDF) below. Posters may also be obtained by contacting the OIG at (202) 566-1513.
