Can be quite substantial

To put in context, the DOJ announced that in fiscal year 2018 alone, it recovered almost $2.9 billion in settlements and judgments involving fraud and false claims against the government.

  • Under False Claims Act, whistleblowers can receive between 15 and 30 percent of the total recovery, whether through a favorable judgment or settlement.
  • Under IRS Whistleblower Program, whistleblowers can receive rewards up to 30 percent of the tax, penalties and interest the IRS collects.
  • Under SEC and CFTC Whistleblower Programs, whistleblowers can receive awards ranging from 10 to 30 percent of the monetary sanctions collected.

Anonymity/Confidentiality Provisions Under Specific Laws

allow whistleblowers to report fraud anonymously

Fraud costs taxpayers billions of dollars every year at every level of government. Healthcare fraud impacts Medicare and Medicaid, taking dollars out of those programs that otherwise would go to much-needed medical care. Fraud by government contractors hits the budgets of federal, state and local agencies, from the Pentagon to city housing departments. Investigators and prosecutors work with scarce resources to police a virtual tidal wave of wrongdoing. To help ferret out fraud, the U.S. government, many states, and some cities have False Claims statutes that enable citizens to act as whistleblowers and bring lawsuits on behalf of the government.
