Whistleblower Protection Act

Washington DC Federal Employment Law Attorney

If you are a federal employee who has engaged in whistleblowing actions and been subjected to subsequent reprisals or adverse personnel actions, it is crucial that you seek professional legal assistance from a DC federal employment law attorney at the Solomon Law Firm, PLLC. You are protected under the Whistleblower Protection Act (WPA) and may pursue legal action against your employer for prohibited personnel practices which are disallowed under the WPA. An experienced attorney at the firm can review your case in a confidential consultation and provide legal advice about your best course of action based on the specifics of your situation.

Legal Recourse under the Whistleblower Protection Act

You may have acted as a whistleblower in disclosing information that provided evidence of illegal activity by the federal government, including violations of federal laws, rules, or regulations, gross mismanagement or waste of funds, various types of fraud, abuse of authority, or placing public health or safety at risk. If you have done so and been subjected to adverse personnel actions, such as intimidation, pay reduction, termination, demotion, not been hired, denied benefits, denied overtime or promotion, blacklisted, or otherwise penalized, you have legal recourse. You may make a claim through the Office of Special Counsel (OSC), pursue your rights before the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB), or initiate a grievance.

Under the WPA, if you show by a preponderance of evidence that you engaged in a whistleblower disclosure and that disclosure contributed to retaliatory personnel actions, you will be returned to your prior position and standing, receive any lost back pay, compensatory damages, and litigation expenses.

It is important that you get experienced legal representation in these types of cases which involve time limits and complicated legal strategies. A DC federal employment law attorney at the firm has proven results in handling cases under the WPA.
