How Much is Whistleblower Reward?

Most of the key whistleblower laws pay rewards only out of monies collected from defendants. So a defendant’s ability to pay is an important factor to consider.

Sometimes the whistleblower reward is reduced below the stated range. Most commonly this is because much of the whistleblower’s information was already in the public domain or the whistleblower inadvertently opened the door to areas of fraud which he or she did not know about. Infrequently, a whistleblower’s reward is reduced because the person played a significant role in the fraud itself. (It can even be zero if the whistleblower is convicted of a related crime.) A reward might also be reduced because of an agreed upon or court ordered sharing arrangement with other whistleblowers.
