Do Whistleblowers Have to Reveal Their Identity?
Straightforward answers from Brewer & Pritchard law firm. We respect your privacy
In many cases involving fraud or illegal activities by companies, whistleblowers can remain anonymous when they report criminal activity to authorities. The IRS allows whistleblowers reporting suspected tax fraud to remain anonymous. And in certain cases, you legally cannot reveal your identity when reporting criminal activity. This is true for qui tam law. When you file a qui tam lawsuit in federal court, you must do so confidentially "under seal," meaning the lawsuit is kept secret by the whistleblower while the government investigates such allegations. If you violate these provisions, your qui tam lawsuit could be dismissed by the government.
