NC Chamber Pushes Whistleblower Bill
A bill in the North Carolina Senate would make it illegal for anyone to lie on a job application for the purpose of getting inside a business just to uncover any possible abuses. Undercover investigations are often associated with the agriculture industry in North Carolina. But Gary Salamido of the state Chamber of Commerce says the agriculture industry is not the driving force behind this bill. He says many industries in the state have complained about people lying on job applications. Salamido is the Chamber’s chief lobbyist on the bill. We asked him why he thinks it’s necessary.
