Corporate fraud has reached new heights in the past decade or so as accounting and fraud debacles such as those at Enron, WorldCom, Tyco have exposed the lengths to which some parties will go in order to maximize their personal gain. Investors continue to be scammed in new and more damaging ways, and whistleblowers wishing to expose fraudulent activities often race retaliation.
However, there are protections for whistleblowers—including those who have knowledge of fraud against the government. A corporate employee, private citizen or other party may act on behalf of the government by initiating what’s called a qui tam lawsuit.
