Long Island Lawmakers Rush to Protect Whistleblowers

Nassau County New York’s Republican legislators recently trumped legislative Democrats in a politically charged race to demonstrate which party cares more about protecting employees who report fraud, waste or abuse, according to a report in Newsday last week. The GOP caught the Democrats by surprise when they filed a proposed “whistleblower” law on Thursday, Jan 20, following a recommendation from the legislature’s budget review director.

Presiding Officer Judy Jacobs (D-Woodbury) at first said she wasn’t sure the county needed a law. Perhaps, she said, after meeting with lawyers for County Executive Thomas Suozzi, a brochure informing employees of their rights would be sufficient. But then Minority Leader Peter Schmitt (R-Massapequa) issued a news release Thursday afternoon trumpeting the GOP proposal. So Jacobs issued her own press release announcing that she was researching efforts to protect whistleblowers.
