What Rewards and Protections
Does the False Claims Act Give A Whistleblower?

If the whistleblower's suit is successful, he or she may receive from 15-30 percent of the government's total recovery. Relator's awards since 1986 have reached almost $1 Billion.

The False Claims Act also prohibits an employer from harassing or retaliating against an employee for attempting to uncover or report fraud on the federal government. If retaliation does occur, the Relator may be awarded "all relief necessary to make the employee whole," including reinstatement, back pay, two times the amount of back pay, litigation costs, and attorney fees.
