If a company has been cheating the government, then you can “blow the whistle” on their scheme and be rewarded up to 30% of what the government recovers.
Companies with government contracts can overcharge the government in variety of ways: increasing the bills, improperly certifying testing, up-coding, falsifying time cards, shipping substandard parts, etc. There are a thousand schemes that result in the government paying more than it should.
A “Whistleblower” claim is brought under the False Claims Act, which is a law created to help people come forward with knowledge of fraud on the government. Congress rewards Whistleblowers with a share of the recoveries to encourage people to take the personal and professional risks involved in reporting fraud.
You do not need to be a corporate insider or officer to bring a Whistleblower claim. You do not even need to be an employee. Cases have been successfully brought by employees, customers, and competitors. Anyone who is aware of fraud on the government can file a Whistleblower claim.
If you believe you have a Whistleblower claim, do not discuss it with anyone other than your lawyer. These cases are filed under seal, meaning that they are not disclosed to anyone other than the government. If you violate the seal, your case can be dismissed.
