Today our guest is Dan Hanley, a veteran airline pilot and Transportation Whistleblower. We will be discussing how hostile medical evaluations can be used to silent dissent and the reporting of fraud, mismanagement, corruption and safety issues within the airline industry. This will be a personal account by airline pilots with many years of experience who were retaliated against for standing up courageously and doing the right thing. These Transportation Whistleblowers are our leaders and important spokespersons for passenger safety. Just like the coal mine canaries, our Medical Whistleblowers show the effects of being exposed to the toxic work environment that the bullies in the workplace create. The sick canary is a sure sign that the air in the coal shaft is toxic and that management should change something or face the consequences. Today we will be learning about some of the ways they silence the whistleblowing canary. Our guests will share their own personal experiences. The clear signal to management should be for there to be change however instead many times the canary is treated like a no good trouble maker. False allegations against the canary’s professional competence and even personal character are common.
