What is the Whistleblower Protection Act?
Explanation of rules and regulations from a respected Houston law firm
Created in 1989, the Whistleblower Protection Act protects whistleblowers that work for the government and take action to stop corrupt government practices or illegal conduct, according to attorneys at Brewer & Pritchard of Houston. This federal law primarily protects government employees from disciplinary action for exposing criminal government activity, including kickbacks, corruption and fraud.
The Office of the Special Counsel, a federal agency, primarily handles investigations involving violations of the Whistleblower Protection Act. Even so, it's important to have an attorney working exclusively for you if you decide to pursue legal action against the government for violating the Whistleblower Protection Act. That's because government fraud whistleblowers sometimes face harassment, disciplinary action or are wrongfully terminated for speaking out.
