Whistleblower of the Week: Nicole Dentonton

Egor S. Grand Nicole Dentonton, a lifelong Bedford resident, worked for seven years at the Bedford Whistle Factory, located just outside of the city. It was, by and large, a happy time for her, until she began to notice some problems with the product. “Early part of last year,” Dentonton told us, “we started to produce whistles that were missing that little ball that enables the unit to actually make a whistling sound.” The defective whistles, according to Dentonton, were rare at first, but grew to “dozens a day.” She complained to her manager and when nothing was done, she complained to her manager’s manager. Still, defective whistles were being produced. Finally, she got a pink slip, demanding her immediate departure. “Some crap about insubordination,” Dentonton said. “Insubordination, my ass. It was because I was complaining about the whistles!” Dentonton took a complaint directly to the Attorney General’s Office, who declined to take her case. Bedford Whistle Factory did not return calls for this story. Currently collecting unemployment, Dentonton is discouraged, but still believes she was in the right. “I’d do it again, too,” she declared. “Can you imagine those children or referees who suddenly find themselves without a whistle? What about the woman who needs it in a darkened alley or parking lot?”
