Submit Confidential Report

Our secure and confidential reporting system allows whistleblowers to disclose potential wrongdoing or retaliation. Staff attorneys at the NWLDEF review the report and will respond to you if you provide your contact information. It is the single best method to have your claim or concerns reviewed quickly, and obtain direct advice on how to proceed.

Whistleblower Legal Assistance

Our Legal Assistance Program is very simple—we match whistleblowers with lawyers who are interested in representing whistleblowers. If the NWLDEF is unable to provide you with legal assistance, you may request that the NWC provide you with a digital copy of the Whistleblower Attorney Directory. The directory lists hundreds of attorneys who have expressed an interest in representing whistleblowers. Neither the NWLDEF nor the NWC endorses or recommends any of the attorneys listed in the directory. The directory is offered as a free pro bono service.

The New Whistleblower's Handbook

The NWC strongly urges every whistleblower to obtain information about their rights and how to protect themselves. The New Whistleblower Handbook is the essential reference guide for whistleblowers and anyone considering blowing the whistle.
