Is a Whistleblower Compensated?

Whistleblower laws are complicated, confusing. Brewer & Pritchard law firm can help

Financial compensation for whistleblowers has been the cornerstone of many corruption laws since the 14th Century, according to attorneys at Brewer & Pritchard, who handle whistleblower cases throughout the world.  In 1318, King Edward II financially rewarded people who reported government fraud. The same concept is applied today in the United States. Under qui tam law and the False Claims Act, many people receive financial compensation for reporting fraudulent criminal activity involving government funds or private businesses.

In 1986, U.S. politicians revised the False Claims Act and significantly increased the amount of money citizens receive nationwide as a reward for reporting fraud. Since then, more than $27 billion in taxpayer funds has been recovered. In some case, some individuals have personally received millions of dollars as a reward for their qui tam case. In one recent case, a whistleblower received $15.4 million for helping uncover the largest Medicaid fraud scheme in the country.
