Connecting people around the 2010 U.S. Census and beyond
the first link below describes what the OSC can do and the channels to go thru. I am going to file 2 separate complaints with them, one being a Prohibited Personnel Practice and the other a Whistleblower Disclosure. They are 2 separate and distinct areas. A complaint of a PPP nature, can have whatever the action taken against you was, remedied in some way. A Whistleblower Disclosure is where you 'tell on' the govt (census bureau) for doing something illegal or against the rules. This type of claim will not offer you any corrective action, only the PPP complaint will do that. They will, however, investigate the Whistleblower DIsclosure, to the fullest (we'll see about that - those are their words, not mine) and take action against the entity that did wrong, if their investigation shows that there was something illegal done.
