The Whistleblower Protection Act of 1989 (WPA) forbids federal agencies from taking adverse personnel actions against federal employees who act as whistleblowers. Since the first days of the republic, exposing wrongdoing has been a duty of all government employees — and Congress has acted to protect the careers of those who do so. The WPA is now the primary tool for such protection: It prohibits the firing or demotion of whistleblowers, as well as other penalties such as blacklisting, reduction of pay, reassignment, or change in duties. If you’ve been punished for doing the right thing, the WPA can help to restore your government career.
