Dear Whistleblower Attorney:

Every year the National Whistleblower Center (NWC) and its sister organization, the National Whistleblower Legal Defense and Education Fund (“Fund”) receive thousands of requests for assistance from whistleblowers facing retaliation. To help these whistleblowers obtain representation we established the Attorney Referral Program (“ARP”).  We need your help to make this program work.

Rules for Whistleblowers


Whistleblowers need to understand their legal rights. Understanding the laws that may cover you will help you in finding an attorney. It will enable you to explain the legal basis for your case and “sell” your case to counsel.

Additionally, understanding your legal rights is essential in protecting your job and in ensuring that your disclosures are lawful and covered under the whistleblower law.

Also, many whistleblower laws permit whistleblowers to qualify for rewards. These include the False Claims Act, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the Internal Revenue Act, the Securities and Exchange Act, the Commodity Exchange Act, and the Auto Safety laws, among others. Whistleblowers need to understand how these laws work to ensure that you qualify for a reward if permitted under law.

To help you understand your rights. The Fund has several resources available to you.
