Incentivizing Integrity

Whistleblower laws are about incentivizing integrity in order to efficiently ferret out fraud.  Incentivized whistleblower programs forge public-private partnerships between whistleblowers, their attorneys, and the government to combat fraud. The success of the False Claims Act, the oldest incentivized whistleblower law in the United States, has spurred passage of similar laws in 29 states and the District of Columbia, as well as whistleblower-incentive programs at the Securities Exchange Commission, the Internal Revenue Service, and the Commodities Future Trading Commission.

Why Whistleblower Laws Work

Incentivized whistleblower laws work because whistleblowers bring hidden information to the government’s attention and their lawyers act as “force multipliers” when cases are investigated and prosecuted.  Because successful whistleblowers are awarded 10 to 30 percent of the sum recovered, whistleblowers and their lawyers are incentivized to investigate frauds in a timely manner, to find as much fraud as possible, and to present evidence of fraud to the government in way in which it can be easily understood and prosecuted.  Unlike a government hot line, a False Claims Act, SEC, IRS, or CFTC whistleblower case must be investigated; they cannot be ignored.
