James Holzrichter - Whistleblower
Presentation: “A Whistleblower’s
Story: Challenge & Triumph”
life experience and professional paths of James H. Holzrichter, Sr. are in many
ways typical of those who are challenged to become or who are designated with
the label of "whistleblower." His
basic efforts at problem solving in his workplace took on a life of its own
that very nearly destroyed his own life and that of his family - taking them
from enjoying the beginnings of the American Dream to living in homeless
shelters for a time and having to find their way back to any kind of life on
the other side of a nearly two decade long battle for basic survival.
As a result of his decidedly unique and active
participation in his own seventeen year long and precedent setting Qui Tam case
(filed in tandem with the Department of Justice of the United States) and
subsequent involvement with organizations like Tax Payers Against Fraud, James
Holzrichter has a acquired a somewhat singular perspective of what works and
what is needed at all levels. He understands and helps put a face on what
survival for individuals and their families looks and feels like at ground
level, while his analytic skills enables
him to contribute to both active and proactive problem solving at higher
His path and perspective however are anything
but typical in many ways that yield a vision of hope and practical strategies
for those who find themselves at risk or in overt conflict with employers
because of knowledge they possess and/or any concerns that have been or may be
expressed, Just as importantly, he possesses the skills and perspectives suited
for supporting the myriad professionals and resources that will come in contact
with them in handling legal issues, providing emotional and material support,
or in advocacy and legislative attempts to proactively prevent such problems in
Attendees will receive a free copy and Mr.
Holzrichter will be available to sign his book
“A Just Cause: A True Story of Courage, Hope
& the Integrity of the American Dream.”
