What Does Qui Tam Mean?

Not all whistleblower statutes have qui tam provisions. The most commonly used whistleblower statutes with qui tam provisions are the federal False Claims Act and various state false claims acts. Neither the SEC nor the IRS whistleblower laws, for example, have qui tam provisions. With those whistleblower programs, a person simply notifies the government investigators of his or her allegations and waits for the outcome, which could be good, bad or inconclusive.
