David Yazbeck, who has extensive experience representing employees in relation to whistleblowing generally and the Public Servants Disclosure Protection Act specifically, was recently invited by the House of Commons Standing Committee on Government Operations and Estimates to testify as part of its review of the Act. David testified on February 9th in order to provide his perspective on the effectiveness of the law.
The PSDPA provides a method for federal public service employees to disclose information that they believe could show that a wrongdoing has been committed or is about to be committed. It is also intended to protect employees who have made disclosures from reprisal.
