A non-profit organization is launching a campaign to make sure bank employees know about new whistleblower protections under the Dodd-Frank Act.

The Government Accountability Project has launched a new website bankwhistleblower.org and is working on a leafleting campaign in 14 cities, with help from Occupy and other groups, reports American Banker's Kevin Wack.

The organization’s president, Louis Clark, says it helped develop the whistleblower provisions in the legislation and called them "state-of-the-art."

But, according to him, bank managers aren’t exactly gung-ho about making sure everyone is up to speed on the protections. "We have not heard that they've informed their employees of these newly won rights, so we thought we would do that," Clark said.
