The Department of Defense – Whistleblower Program

What is a Whistleblower Reprisal Complaint?

Reprisal happens when a management official takes (or, under certain statutes, threatens to take) an unfavorable personnel action against an individual, or withholds (or, under certain statutes, threatens to withhold) a favorable personnel action, because that individual made or was thought to have made a protected communication or disclosure. A complaint of reprisal must meet the following three conditions:

  • Was there a protected communication or disclosure? Read More.
  • Did the responsible management official have knowledge of the protected communication/disclosure OR did the responsible management official(s) believe a specific individual made a protected communication/disclosure, even if they did not? Read More.
  • Was an unfavorable action taken (or, under some statutes, threatened), or was a positive action withheld withheld (or, under some statutes, threatened to be withheld)? Read More.

How to Report to the DoD Hotline:

Whether an unfavorable action was taken or threatened, or a favorable action withheld or threatened to be withheld, is fact-dependent and evaluated on a case-by-case basis.  Have documentation for each personnel action available to submit, if available.  You are encouraged to read the applicable definitions and filing requirements specific to your employee status for more details. For help with filing your specific complaint, refer to the following guides created to assist you.  Click on the appropriate link below to download the guide for your particular status:
