VA employees testify about retaliation against whistleblowers

Four Department of Veterans Affairs employees on Tuesday night testified before a House panel that supervisors retaliated against them for exposing problems at VA medical centers, saying whistleblower-protection issues deserve as much attention as the agency’s recent scheduling scandal.

House Veterans Affairs Committee Chairman Jeff Miller (R-Fla.) reminded attendees at the panel’s hearing that VA workers initially brought to light the issue of VA hospitals falsifying appointment data to hide treatment delays.

“Whistleblowers serve the essential function of providing a reality check of what is actually going on at the department,” he said. “Unlike their supervisors, these whistleblowers have put the interests of veterans above their very own interests.”
