Launched in October, 2021, The Tech Worker Handbook is a collection of resources for US-based tech workers looking to make more informed decisions about whether to speak out on issues in the public interest.
Coordinated by Pinterest whistleblower Ifeoma Ozoma, the Tech Worker Handbook included four in-depth sections: legal, media, security and whistleblower stories. TSN created the legal section to help potential whistleblowers understand legal implications and considerations when weighing whether to come forward. Other contributors included Lioness, Whistleblowing International Network, and Matt Mitchell of the Ford Foundation; the handbok was funded by Omidyar Network.
Now the legal section is available as a pdf download.
In coming months, we will adapt the handbook to empower potential whistleblowers in other jurisdictions, including Ireland and the UK. Watch this space!
