Information for potential whistleblowers about the available whistleblower reward laws and programs
What is a whistleblower reward?
In many instances, the government incentivizes individuals, and companies, to report fraud and other unlawful activity by offering a monetary reward to whistleblowers.
Under the False Claims Act and other whistleblower reward laws and programs, whistleblowers who bring original information to the government can be entitled to receive a share of the government’s recovery.
These financial rewards serve as the basis of a public-private partnership between whistleblowers and the government agencies charged with investigating and prosecuting fraudsters.
Colorado’s Public Health Emergency Whistleblower (PHEW) Act provides protections to essential workers and individuals who act to further workplace safety and health. In addition, the PHEW Act allows for whistleblowers to file qui tam actions and receive a share of any government recovery.
