We encourage you to listen and learn from these two engaging personalities as they offer personal perspective and professional expertise on those courageous enough to blow the whistle on wrongdoing.
About Heidi Weber: As Dean of the Globe Medical Assistant Program, Heidi Weber was fired in April 2011. She claimed the for-profit school engaged in consumer fraud by making misleading statements to students about its job placement rates and failing to meet its commitment to place all qualified medical assistant program students in externship programs, according to the court record. Rather than address her concerns constructively, Globe University officials chose to silence her by firing her. Represented by Clayton Halunen and Ross Stadheim of Halunen Law in Minneapolis, Weber won a $400,000 verdict in a civil court case in 2013.
About the Whistleblower Revolution: The launch of Weber’s Whistleblower Revolution podcast provides whistleblowers from around the country a unique space to share their stories. With her fierce spirit and empathetic approach, Weber highlights the daunting task of blowing the whistle and the personal toll the ordeal can take.
