  • On July 1, 2013, the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act (“NDAA”) went into effect. This Act is the latest example of the legal trend towards making it easier to achieve “whistleblower” status and providing greater protections when one becomes a whistleblower. Simply put, it is now easier for millions of potential whistleblowers to achieve that status and be afforded increased protections.
