Whistleblower Resources

The Whistleblower Protection Act of 1989 prohibits reprisal. It is unlawful for agencies to take or threaten to take a personnel action against an employee because he or she disclosed wrongdoing. Personnel actions can include poor performance review, demotion, suspension, or termination. In addition, the law prohibits retaliation for filing an appeal, complaint, or grievance; helping someone else file or testifying on their behalf; or cooperating with or disclosing information to the OIG. If you suspect that you have been retaliated against for whistleblowing, please contact the OIG Hotline or the U.S. Office of Special CounselFor a pamphlet prepared by the Office of Special Counsel (OSC) containing more information please see our newstand and click on the PDF "Know Your Rights When Reporting Wrongs."

Whether you report allegations via the online complaint form, phone, fax, mail, e-mail, or in person, OIG will not disclose your identity without your consent, unless the Inspector General determines such disclosure is unavoidable during the course of the investigation.
