GAP’s Litigation Program covers a wide range of cases before administrative agencies and courts in a variety of jurisdictions. Our litigation activities involve directly challenging the adverse action taken against a whistleblower and may also involve challenging the wrongdoing exposed by the whistleblower.
GAP is highly selective about the cases it accepts for litigation. Determining factors vary from case to case and the overall circumstances of a particular case. Cases that are not accepted are often referred to law firms or attorneys experienced in whistleblower or employment litigation. However, GAP cannot guarantee that a referred case will be accepted by an outside attorney or firm.
In addition to litigation, GAP recommends that whistleblowers seek advice and assistance before they are confronted with adverse employment actions. GAP strongly supports the concept of “anonymous activism.” This concept focuses on whistleblowers acting through GAP or other credible whistleblower support organizations to confidentially reveal her/his concerns. GAP can work with whistleblowers to reveal their concerns in a manner that provides as much anonymity as possible.
