A Little Good News

The whistleblower provision has been approved by the City Council, which overrode Mike "Accountability" Bloomberg's veto by 49-1.

The existing city whistleblower law protects city employees from being demoted, fired or disciplined in retaliation for reporting corruption, criminal activity or abuse of authority by another city employee. The new legislation would further protect Department of Education employees from retribution for complaining about a school policy or procedure that jeopardizes the health, safety or educational welfare of students.
