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
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
