Whistleblower Protection Fights Fraud & Corruption

Fraud against the government and illegal acts by government agencies and officials are crimes against the American people. Defrauding the government robs everyday citizens whose hard-earned taxes pay for our military, schools, roads, courts, health care, and other basic goods and services. Illegal conduct, whether it involves violations of laws designed to protect consumers, bank customers, stockholders/investors, passengers on public transportation systems, our food supply, civil rights, public health, or the environment, places public and private sector employees or other members of the public at risk.

In 2018, it will be more important than ever for civil servants and employees of companies providing goods and services to the government to be vigilant about reporting episodes of fraud and other unlawful conduct. Every false tax return or untruthful invoice diverts funds from government services and into the pockets of fraudulent businesses.

Moreover, illegal acts by government agencies and officials create a culture of corruption that undermines our system of laws and ethical standards, eroding confidence in our government and society.
