Advantages of Whistleblower Aid

Whistleblower Aid is unique.

Other legal organizations do not currently provide all of these advantages that Whistleblower Aid provides to every client:

Security and Anonymity

Insecure technologies like regular email and phones can’t protect your identity. We use encrypted encrypted and anonymous channels to communicate with clients. We can provide every client with new, customized and encrypted devices so that you can be sure your communications with us are secure and confidential. We accept new inquiries over SecureDrop, the leading platform for anonymity.

Legal Knowledge and Experience

Members of our legal team have decades of experience and were counsel for the most impactful whistleblower case in recent memory which led to presidential impeachment. Our founder and CEO, John N. Tye, was himself a National Security Agency whistleblower who understands the challenges that whistleblowers face. Whistleblower Aid has represented multiple whistleblowers in highly sensitive matters and is intimately familiar with proper reporting channels.

Avoiding & Defending Retaliation

We can help you avoid retaliation by keeping your identity secret. But if you do ultimately suffer reprisals, we can help you fight back and enforce your rights as a worker and whistleblower. Members of our legal team have years of experience representing whistleblowers in retaliation claims.

Free, Pro Bono Representation

Whistleblower Aid is a non-profit legal organization. WBA routinely represents whistleblowers, on a pro bono basis and in the public interest, regardless of whether there is any opportunity for a monetary recovery. In the rare case where attorneys fees are awarded, they are used to help other whistleblowers to report lawbreaking by government agencies, businesses and individuals.

Contact Us

Contact our lawyers first, as soon as possible. If you disclose your concerns first to your employer or others not bound to confidentiality, then you are more likely to suffer retaliation. Communications with a lawyer are protected by attorney-client privilege while we work with you to find the best way to report your disclosure.

Our intake systems are designed to protect your anonymity while we assess whether we can help you. SecureDrop is the best choice for anyone worried about retaliation.

SecureDrop takes five minutes longer than sending an email, but it is vastly more secure. Think of the difference between shouting your private message across a crowded room and delivering an encoded message that only the recipient can decode. We recommend whistleblowers never use regular email or telephones to discuss their case.
