Several federal laws exist that grant whistleblowers financial compensation for reporting fraud and other criminal activity. Our Las Vegas whistleblower attorneys have handled such cases and have helped clients obtain money for their efforts. The practice of rewarding whistleblowers dates back to 1318 in England, where King Edward II financially rewarded people who reported government fraud. The same remains true today in the United States. Under qui tam law and the False Claims Act, many people receive financial compensation for reporting fraudulent criminal activity involving government funds or private businesses.
