Being the target of a whistleblower investigation can be overwhelming. Even if you know you didn’t do anything wrong, you will still likely need to work hard to prove your innocence.

What should I do if a whistleblower has filed a complaint against me?
Knowing what to do after a whistleblower has filed a complaint against you can be confusing. That’s why we advise you to take the following steps if you’re the focus of such an investigation:
- Do not respond to the whistleblower complaint verbally or in writing. Anything you say or write could be used as evidence against you.
- Save all written correspondences from the person filing a whistleblower complaint against you.
- Save all written documentation related to the item or purchase that’s the focus of the whistleblower investigation.
- Contact our law firm as soon as possible. The sooner we can meet with you, the sooner we can properly assess your legal case.
We realize it may be tempting to try to handle the whistleblower investigation against you on your own, especially if you believe the complaint does not have any merit. The reality is you need to take these complaints seriously, since they can have such serious consequences.
