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.
