Since 1977, Government Accountability Project has worked to promote government and corporate accountability by working with whistleblowers—employees who feel compelled to speak up after discovering illegality, gross mismanagement or waste of funds, and threats to health, safety and the environment in order to affect change. By offering legal support and advocacy assistance to whistleblowers whose concerns expose abuses of power, we advance the rights of employees to raise concerns free from reprisal while at the same time protecting the public interest by turning evidence of wrongdoing into real reform.
As a nonprofit with limited resources, Government Accountability Project unfortunately isn’t able to offer formal representation for every whistleblower. We review all requests for support and if we are not able to take it on, we offer strategic advice or referrals to other agencies, organizations, or lawyers that may be able to provide assistance. We will let you know as soon as possible whether or not we can accept your case, although, it may take up to a month for our team to review your case and get back to you.
As an applicant, you are responsible for understanding any legal deadlines associated with your case, and Government Accountability Project is not responsible for alerting you that a deadline is approaching during the application process. Contacting us to describe your problem does not mean that we represent you and will not stop the statute of limitations from running.
