Common questions about reporting fraud

What’s the process of “blowing the whistle”?

Your whistleblower attorney will strategize how to best build your case and protect you from retaliation. Once your case is ready, these findings are presented to the Department of Justice in a confidential filing. If fraud is proven, you can receive a substantial reward.

How will I be protected?

Everything you talk about with your whistleblowing attorney is completely confidential. When you file a claim, it is kept “under seal” for at least 60 days, meaning your identity is hidden. Regardless, it is illegal for any organization to retaliate against you, and if they do, you are likely entitled to additional compensation on top of any whistleblower reward.

Because of our experience, we can help you evaluate any potential risks and create a plan to address them. Learn more about whistleblower protections and our You-First Policy.

How much money do whistleblowers receive?

A whistleblower can receive up to 30% of the government’s recovery. So, if a case settles for $30 million, a whistleblower could receive up to $9 million.

How long do I have to report fraud?

It’s generally recommended to have a qui tam attorney file your case as soon as possible, as the first person to report the fraud is in the best position to receive an reward. If someone else files first, you may not receive anything.

If you’re wondering if it’s a good idea to speak with a whistleblower lawyer about what you know, let us set the record straight.

  • Corporate ethics hotlines can be risky and may lead to termination. If you’ve already done this, call us immediately.
  • Your coworkers could be aware of the fraud – or complicit in it – and you should not talk to them about it.
  • The first claim to be filed under the False Claims Act can proceed – if you’re not first, you’re at a serious disadvantage and may get nothing (another reason not to speak to your coworkers about it).
  • A confidential discussion costs you a few minutes, but could save you time, stress, and money.
