Frequently, whistleblowers are disgruntled former employees, who feel they know detailed information about the “fraudulent” operation where they once worked. When they relate to the government concerning a False Claims Act case, it’s not only revenge they seek, but also stand to get paid well for the information exposed! Even though this is a giant-sized migraine for their prior employer, the whistleblower must not have participated in the false claims to collect their share of the settlement or jury award.
