Insurance 101 – Chapter 15 – Volume 41 – Protection for Whistleblowers

Protection for Whistleblowers

The qui tam statutes make it expensive to an employer to retaliate against the employee/whistle blower. If it can be proved that an employer has taken any adverse action against the employee, the employee may seek compensation from the employer. Compensation includes reinstatement at the same seniority status, an award of two times the employee’s back pay plus interest, and any other special damages. The employee also may receive reimbursement for all litigation costs including attorneys’ fees.
