Ulster County, New York, adopts whistleblower protection

The Mid-Hudson News reports that Ulster County, New York, has now adopted a Whistleblower Employee/Agent Protection  Policy. The report says that the policy will protect employees of the county and its contractors.  One proponent of the policy was County Comptroller Elliott Auerbach. The article quotes him as saying that the policy is, “To give the county employee, or county contractor, an oasis, where they can feel safe when they bring an issue forward. Realize how important that is, and put into perspective what’s been going on the past six to nine months in our county, and you’ll understand the value of the legislation that you are going to pass tonight.”
