Named a Most Anticipated Book of 2020 by Vogue, Forbes, and Cosmopolitan The unbelievable true story of the young woman who faced down one of the most valuable startups in Silicon Valley history--and what came after Susan Fowler was just twenty-five years old when her blog post describing the sexual harassment and retaliation she'd experienced at Uber riveted the nation. Her post would eventually lead to the ousting of Uber's powerful CEO, but its ripples extended far beyond that, as her courageous choice to attach her name to the post inspired other women to speak publicly about their experiences. In the year that followed, an unprecedented number of women came forward, and Fowler was recognized by Time as one of the "Silence Breakers" who ignited the #MeToo movement. Now, she tells her full story for the first time: a story of extraordinary determination and resilience that reveals what it takes--and what it means--to be a whistleblower. Long before she arrived at Uber, Fowler's life had been defined by her refusal to accept her circumstances. She propelled herself from an impoverished childhood with little formal education to the Ivy League, and then to a coveted position at one of the most valuable companies in the history of Silicon Valley. Each time she was mistreated, she fought back or found a way to reinvent herself; all she wanted was the opportunity to define her own dreams and work to achieve them. But when she discovered Uber's pervasive culture of sexism, racism, harassment, and abuse, and that the company would do nothing about it, she knew she had to speak out--no matter what it cost her. Whistleblower takes us deep inside this shockingly toxic workplace and reveals new details about the aftermath of the blog post, in which Fowler was investigated and followed, hacked and threatened, to the point that she feared for her life. But even as it illuminates how the deck is stacked in favor of the status quo, Fowler's story serves as a crucial reminder that we can take our power back. Both moving personal narrative and rallying cry, Whistleblower urges us to be the heroes of our own stories, and to keep fighting for a more just and equitable world.
When Nebraska police officer and divorced mother of three Kathryn Bolkovac saw a recruiting announcement for private military contractor DynCorp International, she applied and was hired. Good money, world travel, and the chance to help rebuild a war-torn country sounded like the perfect job. Bolkovac was shipped out to Bosnia, where DynCorp had been contracted to support the UN peacekeeping mission. She was assigned as a human rights investigator, heading the gender affairs unit. The lack of proper training provided sounded the first alarm bell, but once she arrived in Sarajevo, she found out that things were a lot worse. At great risk to her personal safety, she began to unravel the ugly truth about officers involved in human trafficking and forced prostitution and their connections to private mercenary contractors, the UN, and the U.S. State Department. After bringing this evidence to light, Bolkovac was demoted, felt threatened with bodily harm, was fired, and ultimately forced to flee the country under cover of darkness—bringing the incriminating documents with her. Thanks to the evidence she collected, she won a lawsuit against DynCorp, finally exposing them for what they had done. This is her story and the story of the women she helped achieve justice for.

Attorney, scholar, teacher 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. He provides a step-by-step overview of how to conceptualize and litigate whistleblower cases; detailed analyses of protections for employees who disclose environmental, nuclear, and health and safety violations; a clear, concise presentation of the most important protections contained in the First Amendment, the Civil Rights Act of 1971, and the False Claims Act's qui tam provisions. Kohn also gives detailed discussions of protected activity, discriminatory conduct, proof of retaliation, burdens of persuasion, damages, and attorney fees. The result is a major, practical resource for attorneys, executives, judges, legal scholars, and teachers in various fields of the law.
The book describes a true and detailed account of a scientific misconduct case involving two department chairmen in a major medical school, the whistle blowing that exposed their misdeeds, the attempts of cover-up by the university administration and the retaliatory actions of the administration against the whistleblower. The book also describes how the leadership of one of the largest scientific societies in the US has chosen not to investigate a charge of signature forgery on a Society's form . The charge was filed against a member of the society who happened to be one of the chairmen involved in the scientific misconduct case described in the book. While experts on the topic continuously assuring the public that scientific misconduct continues to be newsworthy because it continues to be rare, no one really knows whether such rarity is due only to a few bad apples or to a successful cover-up by university administrators whose job is to protect their institution's reputation and to assure the continuation of extramural research funding. At times when the financial stakes are very high for both the perpetrator scientist and the university that is benefiting from his research grants, the lone whistleblower finds himself even more isolated and against much larger forces, and ultimately, he/she pays a much greater price for blowing the whistle. This book thus exposes for the first time the length to which administrations of some academic institutions are willing to go to prevent the public from hearing about the misdeeds perpetrated by some of their scientists.
The first book to provide an overview of the impact, implications, and procedures of the new corporate whisteblower laws emerging from the landmark Sarbanes-Oxley Act.
