Whistleblowers are the key to exposing corporate wrongdoing and government fraud. Provisions of the False Claims Act make whistleblowers eligible to receive up to 30 percent of money recovered as a result of their report. To date, whistleblowers have received more than $4 billion for reporting fraud against the government. Whistleblower laws also provide protection from retaliation. An experienced whistleblower lawyer is an important ally in bringing wrongdoers to justice.
A whistleblower is the most critical resource for uncovering fraud. In Fiscal Year 2014, the U.S. Justice Department reported that it recovered a record sum of nearly $5.7 billion in civil settlements and judgments under the False Claims Act. Most of those claims involved fraud against Medicare, Medicaid and other government health care programs, and most of the recoveries originated from whistleblower lawsuits.
