Whistleblowing is the act of reporting or revealing wrongdoing or illicit activity. Whistleblowing can take many forms, including providing information to the authorities, as well as revealing illicit activity to the general public. Whistleblowing does not always involve illegal activity and can sometimes involve disclosing actions which are considered unethical or immoral.
There are numerous laws that protect individuals in the U.S. who wish to whistleblow. However, these laws are complex and whether they will offer protection to you depends on what you report, when you report, how you report and who you report to. If you have any concerns about something you have witnessed in your workplace or elsewhere we suggest that you speak with an attorney before taking any action. Reporting to the wrong person or entity could affect your rights and protections as a whistleblower.
A whistleblower award is a payment you can receive from the U.S. government for providing information on companies who commit fraud, bribery or tax evasion. In 2012 the U.S. government started rewarding brave individuals (often called whistleblowers) for providing information on corporate crime and so far has paid out over $2 billion dollars.
We recommend that anyone who believes in corporate accountability, fighting corruption or preventing fraud should report violations they have witnessed. We believe that awards should be viewed as a secondary benefit of the whistleblower programs, with the primary benefit being that the conduct you report will hopefully be investigated and prosecuted to the full extent of the law. If you are solely motivated to become a whistleblower by the prospect of receiving an award, our firm may not be a good fit for you. We endeavour to obtain the maximum award possible for all of our clients, but prefer to partner with clients who have a passion for justice and, like us, view the prospect of an award as a secondary benefit to helping in the fight against corruption, fraud and injustice.
