Houston Moves to Codify Whistleblower Protections With Ordinance


A proposed new whistleblower ordinance proposed by Mayor Mike Houston mirrors protections that already exist in state law.

 

That’s according to Houston, who nonetheless thinks it’s a good idea to clarify the procedures city workers should follow when they witness wrongdoing on the job.

 

Houston’s ordinance spells out who should be contacted, and reminds employees that retaliation against workers who make whistleblower complaints is prohibited.

 

Houston denies that his proposal, which is on first reading tonight, is in response to Alderman Cory Jobe’s recent push to reinstate the inspector general position at City Hall.
