The Whistleblower Protection Act protects federal employees from retaliation for making any disclosure that the employee reasonably believes reveals a violation of law, rule or regulation or evidences gross waste of funds, gross mismanagement, an abuse of authority or a substantial and specific threat to public health or safety committed by a government entity, agency, or employee.
The attorneys at Tully Rinckey PLLC have extensive experience representing whistleblowers subject to retaliation, including several high profile cases. Our attorneys are available to advise you regarding every stage of the process from making a disclosure to an Inspector General or other oversight agency to the filing of a claim of retaliation with the Office of Special Counsel (OSC) and the resulting investigation to any subsequent appeal to the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB).
Further, if you are a federal contractor, our attorneys can advise you regarding your rights under a variety of federal statutes which provide remedies for whistleblower reprisal, including statutes which protect Department of Defense contractors and contractors who are working on contracts established through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
