Employee whistleblowers are needed to expose hard to detect systematic fraud. As such, several whistleblower reward laws have been enacted to allow employee whistleblowers to recover large financial rewards for properly exposing significant fraud. These laws target healthcare fraud, defense contractor fraud, investment fraud, safety issues, and corruption including bribes.
Employees including healthcare professionals, financial professionals, IT professionals, auditors, and quality control professionals often have specialized knowledge regarding fraud and corruption schemes. To protect these employee whistleblowers several protections have been written into several of the whistleblower reward laws.
