Carolyn Lerner, Office of Special Counsel

As part of our special report Trust Redefined: Reconnecting Government and its Employees, Tom and Emily spoke with Carolyn Lerner on the Federal Drive. She says the new law lets her office more aggressively defend both whistleblowers and the federal government’s merit system.
