VOLUNTEERS NEEDED for a study of whistleblowing in the federal government

Good Morning!

I am a doctoral student at Rutgers University and would like to interview current or former federal employees for my dissertation on whistleblowing in the federal government.

I am interested in talking to people with either direct or indirect experiences of whistleblowing in their agencies, with a focus on organizational and personal factors that influence the decision to report or not report wrongdoing.

Interviews are confidential and conducted by phone (or Skype) and estimated to last 40-60 minutes. The study has been approved by Rutgers Institutional Review Board (IRB) # 12-846M.

Current or former mid-level managers, supervisors, and front-line employees at the following agencies are encouraged to respond to this call: Housing and Urban Development, Homeland Security (US Customs Office), Department of Defense, Department of Agriculture, Health and Human Services, Department of Treasury, US Air Force, Transportation Security Administration (Federal Air Marshals) and the National Security Agency.

If you would like to participate, or need more information about my study or eligibility requirements you can send an email to me at [email protected]

Thank you!

Cecilia Lavena
