You may be aware of high-stakes fraud cases making news when whistleblowers publicly expose corruption, executives go to jail and justice is served. Mention the names Madoff, Enron, WorldCom and most of us think of fraud, scandal, Ponzi schemes and the ruin of reputation and trust.
What you may not see in every headline is the actual person behind the scenes, who bravely “blew the whistle” and exposed deceptive dealings. These honest individuals are not always publicly acknowledged – but under modern U.S. law, they are the unsung heroes, and may be compensated for exposing fraud against public programs.
U.S. whistleblowers have been protected and encouraged to report and expose fraud since the Civil War. Under the law, whistleblowers can receive up to 30 percent of the amount recovered on behalf of the government. The government recognizes the importance of those individuals who have the courage and integrity to report dishonest activity in the workplace, including tax and securities fraud, stock market schemes and fraud perpetrated against various government programs, including government paid drugs and health care programs.
