How Do Whistleblowers Earn Rewards?
The federal False Claims Act allows individual citizens to file a qui tam lawsuit on behalf of the government and to share in any money the government recovers.
The lawsuit is initially filed “under seal” (in secret) and the evidence is shared only with the local prosecutor. This allows the government to investigate the case before the defendant knows that they are suspected of wrongdoing.
After conducting its investigation, the government may decide to intervene in the lawsuit and take over the case. Or the government may allow the whistleblower and their attorney to prosecute the lawsuit on the government’s behalf.
In return for bringing the qui tam lawsuit, the whistleblower is entitled to a reward of between 15% and 30% of the amount the government recovers.
