These resources are provided to you pro bono by the National Whistleblower Legal Defense and Education Fund (NWLDEF), an independent non-profit law firm.

The NWLDEF works closely with the National Whistleblower Center (NWC) to help it further their mutual goal of protecting and empowering whistleblowers to fight corruption and other wrongdoing. However, the NWLDEF and the are separate organizations. Please understand that neither the NWLDEF nor the NWC is responsible for the actions taken by any lawyer or firm that you may contact using these resources.

The decision to contact any of these resources or hire an attorney from them is yours alone. If you hire an attorney from one of these resources to represent you, the NWLDEF will not be involved with your case, unless your attorney asks for additional involvement, and the NWLDEF consents to such involvement, in writing.

Furthermore, it is up to you to independently evaluate the quality of any attorney or law firm you hire. A link to an organization or resource published on this page does not constitute an endorsement of any attorney or law firm.

Take Action to Support Whistleblowers!

Unfortunately, many whistleblower laws are weak and there are loopholes in coverage. Highly qualified and deserving whistleblowers often have a difficult time obtaining legal counsel. This is caused in large part by problems in the law. We urge you to join NWC’s ACTION ALERT network. These networks enable whistleblowers and their supporters to shape government policy and expand legal protections for whistleblowers.

Given the constant assault on whistleblower laws waged by organizations such as the U. S. Chamber of Commerce, it is imperative that whistleblowers and their supporters make their voices heard.

Join the National Whistleblower Center’s Action Alert Network. We also urge you to subscribe to Whistleblower Network News to stay up to date on the latest developments impacting whistleblowers. Both of these networks are offered free of charge.

Know Your Rights!

The Whistleblower HandbookWe cannot overstate the importance of learning your rights and the best practices for reporting wrongdoing. We suggest that you – in the strongest terms possible – obtain a copy of The New Whistleblower’s Handbook: A Step-by-Step Guide to Doing What’s Right and Protecting Yourself (Lyons Press, 2017). This Handbook contains 31 rules that all whistleblowers should understand in order to protect their rights. If you cannot afford to purchase Handbook, you can request a free copy fund@report-fraud-now.info. If you find the Handbook Helpful, please make a donation to the National Whistleblower Center.

We also urge you to subscribe to Whistleblower Network News, a free online newspaper published by the NWLDEF. By accessing the newspaper, you can also access Frequently Asked Questions and other resources explaining your rights as a whistleblower.

If you’d like to contact the NWLDEF with a general inquiry, email fund@report-fraud-now.info.
