From the abstract:
This article will discuss the unique complexities associated with whistleblower laws and programs in the United States. It will focus on discussion of the myriad of current federal and state laws created because of concern over risks in this area. The goal of this article is to compare state and federal legislation, for the purpose of identifying the states that offer the best protection to whistleblowers as well as identifying any states that offer better protection to whistleblowers than federal law currently provides.
