THE WHISTLEBLOWER ACT

A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine found that the primary reason whistleblowers are willing to place their employment and very future at risk is because of personal integrity, followed by their interest in protecting the public’s health and safety.  Whistleblowers step forward, despite personal reasons not to, because they want to ensure those who defraud the government are held accountable. This role takes courage, dedication and fortitude.

Deciding to file a qui tam claim can be a difficult decision; however, in addition to the satisfaction one feels from "doing the right thing," there are rewards when the claim is successful and whistleblower protection under the False Claims Act, popularly known as the Whistleblower Act, is there to protect you. 

"This country will not be a permanently good place for any of us to live in unless we make it a reasonably good place for all of us to live in."  Theodore Roosevelt

Many people who step forward and become whistleblowers do so because they feel the risks are worth taking, to save lives, to protect the innocent and to right a wrong. It is because there are risks involved in filing a qui tam claim that the federal False Claims Act provides both whistleblower protection and a substantial reward for the “relator” (whistleblower who files a qui tam claim).
