The Corporate Whistleblower Center says,"The New York False Claims Act allows people to help both state and local governments regain funds lost through fraud or corrupt practices. Whistleblowers (employees or citizens) file lawsuits known as qui tam suits, that are filed secretly, allowing the government to investigate allegations. If a company is found in violation of laws under the False Claims Act, they are required to pay major penalty fines."
As a reward for their information, whistleblowers are can be given a portion of the settlement, that is typically between 10 and 30 percent. They are also supposed to be protected from retaliation from their employer.
“The Corporate Whistleblower Center has been a passionate advocate for whistleblowers for a decade,” says a representative from the group. “We think it’s high time all states adopt whistleblower laws that reward individuals.”
