Case EvaluationSpeak to a Whistleblower
The Whistleblower Protection Act of 1989, commonly referred to as the Whistleblower Act, is a United States federal law that protects federal whistleblowers (employees of the government who report agency misconduct). A federal agency violates the Whistleblower Protection Act if it takes or fails to take (or threatens to take) a personnel action with respect to an employee or applicant because of any disclosure of information by the employee or applicant that he or she reasonably believes is evidence of a violation of a rule, law or regulation; gross mismanagement; gross waste of funds; an abuse of authority; or a substantial and specific danger to public health or safety.
Once the law was created, the Office of Special Counsel (OSC) organization followed. They are responsible for investigating complaints from bureaucrats that they were punished after reporting to Congress about waste, fraud, or abuse in their agencies. The OSC has jurisdiction over allegations of whistleblower retaliation made by employees of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
Each year, the government loses billions of dollars due to fraud and misconduct of companies and organizations. If you or someone you know has reason to believe that employer or government misconduct is present you may have legal options for compensation. In recent years, whistleblower litigation has helped save billions of government US dollars.
Those who witness these illegal actions have legal options and may seek compensation through litigation. Filing a claim against the entity responsible may result in compensation for the whistleblower that can be up to 25 percent of the government recovery. Billions have been rewarded to whistleblowers!
