THE WHISTLEBLOWER PROTECTION ACT AND WHISTLEBLOWER RETALIATION
In the United States, whistleblower protection againt whistleblower retaliation is granted by the federal government in the form of the False Claims Act, also known as the Whistleblower Protection Act. This law protects employees, contractors, and others who report fraudulent activity on the part of their company or organization by prohibiting retaliation. Retaliation against a person for blowing the whistle on fraud, corruption, or other wrongdoing is a criminal offense.
The law intends to encourage people to report fraud, so we can be assured that government funds are used appropriately, and fraudulent or wasteful practices are stopped. Anyone can report fraud or wrongdoing under the False Claims Act, but to be protected from retaliation the report must be made to the proper authorities. Most people are unaware that the law provides strong protections for whistleblowers under the Whistleblower Protection Act against whistleblower retaliation and that they can report fraud anonymously. If you have information about fraud against the government, report it. If your company is defrauding the government, do not let it continue. You have strong whistleblower protections against whistleblower retailiatin under the Whistleblower Protection Act and other laws.
