Two bills introduced in January 2012 (A1099, S787) seek to extend CEPA, New Jersey’s broad whistleblower statute, to add whistleblower protection (1) for employees who report a substantial waste of public funds by a governmental entity, and (2) for employees of a governmental entity who report an abuse of authority or gross mismanagement. Related bills were introduced, but failed to advance, in 2011.
