First and foremost, know that you are doing the right thing. It takes independence and moral courage to be the one person in a company to ask, “Is what we are doing right?” But often, it is that one person—the whistleblower—that saves his or her fellow American taxpayers millions of dollars, and ultimately makes the company a more ethical place to work. And the government appreciates what you do. According to official U.S. Department of Justice statistics, since 1987 the federal government has recovered $39 billion in cases brought under the primary qui tam statute the False Claims Act. In addition, the federal government has paid more than $4.2 billion in awards to whistleblowers under that statute, including approximately $3.6 billion since 2001.
