Your Rights As A Whistleblower
Businesses are held to high moral and ethical standards. They are expected to accurately report income and pay associated taxes. If an employee has witnessed an employer intentionally violating income and tax obligations, he or she may make a report under the protection of the government.

For more than three decades, the employment law attorneys of Markowitz & Richman have assisted whistleblowers in reporting their observations to the appropriate government agency. They also work to protect the rights of employees who fear retaliation in the workplace after reporting a claim.

Every year, billions of dollars in potential tax revenue is fraudulently withheld from the IRS by businesses and individuals. In an effort to prevent criminal tax fraud and motivate whistleblowers, the government enacted the False Claims Act.
The False Claims Act protects whistleblowers from retaliation tactics, including termination, demotion or discrimination. It also allows whistleblowers to collect 15 to 25 percent of any amount of money the IRS may recover.
