Litigator, teacher, and scholar Stephen Kohn presents a comprehensive, unified examination of the 35 federal laws that protect whistleblowers and their rights, plus the common law protections available in each of the 50 states. For the first time in one easily accessed volume, readers will find the basic principles upon which all whistleblower law is premised. Mr. Kohn lays out the basic legal principles applicable to almost every whistleblower case, such as the scope of protected activity and who qualifies for protection. He shows what constitutes discriminatory conduct, what type of evidence demonstrates that improper retaliation occurred, the burdens of proof on both the employee and employer, how to calculate damages and attorney fees, common settlement and fundamental procedural issues, and much more, all in meticulously documented detail and a readable, engaging style. Built upon Mr. Kohn's extensive practical experience and his scholarly research and teaching, not only is the book an essential resource for study and analysis of whistleblowing issues, but it is also a step-by-step guide for conceptualizing and litigating them. Attorneys with specialties in a wide range of fields involving whistleblower law and related policy issues will find a thoughtful, comprehensive examination, and an immediately applicable courtroom aid. It will also be important for human resource executives, labor union officers and attorneys, government contractors, and recipients of government grants, university and government libraries, federal agency executives and specialists, public interest and good government organizations-and many others who have become fascinated by this relatively new, but long-time coming, branch of the law, how it developed, and how it is being applied today.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"My personal advice to any whistle-blower is to make sure his or her lawyer has a copy of Kohn's book and has read it."-Rachel's Environment & Health News
?My personal advice to any whistle-blower is to make sure his or her lawyer has a copy of Kohn's book and has read it.?-Rachel's Environment & Health News
"Every whistleblower must read this book."-National Whistleblower Center
"Stephen Kohn's new book on whistleblowing, Concepts and Procedures in Whistleblower Law, is a masterpiece. The book is an invaluable resource, which clearly and concisely explains the complex maze of regulations and laws governing whistleblowing. Comprehensive, well organized and readable, it is simply the best legal text ever written on the subject."-Victoria Toensing Founding Partner, di Genova & Toensing
"Workers who stand up for their co-workers and the public good against lawbreaking employers are among the unsung heroes of our society. Stephen Kohn's book gives workers, their unions, and their lawyers all the tools they need to make sure that when the whistle is blown, the wrongdoer and not the whistleblower gets punished."-John J. Sweeney President American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organization
"Stephen Kohn's new treatise on Whistleblower Protection Law provides a critical resource in a vital area. Whistleblowers help protect us all in countless ways--they expose dangerous environmental conditions, unsafe work practices, consumer rip-offs, and fraud on the government. Kohn's scholarly, yet common-sense treatment of this subject, pulls together the existing amalgam of scattered labor and employment laws that protect whistleblowers and give the practitioner a reliable and effective tool for navigating these waters."-Gerard M Waites Partner O'Donoghue & O'Donoghue
"There are at least three reasons why every lawyer should buy and read this book. First, Steve Kohn is America's premier lawyer on whistleblower issues. Second, whistleblower law protects vital freedoms of speech, conscience and petition--you should read this book to help understand how those freedoms are endangered by big government and corporate America. Third, Steve Kohn knows how to write about the law--he shows you why he has achieved his notable courtroom successes, and sets out clearly what every lawyer and every whistleblower needs to know."-Michael E. Tigar Professor of Law American University
