If you’ve observed wrongdoing in the workplace, then you might be tempted to voice your concerns to bring what could be illegal activity to an end. Yet, merely thinking about blowing the whistle on your employer can be stressful to think about. So, is taking that action the right move for you?

That’s a decision that only you can make. But in this post, we want to look at some of the advantages of blowing the whistle so that you know what you stand to gain by moving forward with a qui tam claim.

The benefits of whistleblowing

Blowing the whistle on your employer can have enormous benefits. This includes:

  • Protecting your co-workers and the public from wasteful practices and other behaviors that cause physical, emotional, and psychological harm.
  • Avoiding the implication of criminal liability, which could be imposed if you remain silent about criminal behavior going on at your place of employment.
  • Securing peace of mind knowing that you’ve done the right thing by calling out bad actors.
  • Obtaining compensation as a reward for taking the risk to publicly denounce illegal actions facilitated by your employer.

There may be other benefits that you obtain by blowing the whistle, so be sure to fully analyze what you can get out of your claim.

Keep in mind that there are some risks associated with whistleblowing, such as unwarranted discipline, damage to your career, and bad publicity, but these risks are oftentimes outweighed by the potential rewards. Just be sure to discuss your concerns with your attorney so that you can make the decision that’s right for you.
