A Whistleblower's primary goal is to put a stop to the retaliation against him, and to ensure that the problem is corrected.
The reality though, is a company that retaliates against an employee in order to cover up fraud, will never admit wrong doing and will never admit to the fraud. The whistleblower is left with no reasonble option, but to file a qui tam.
I find it very unjust that a whistleblower cannot even begin to seek a remedy for the felonies committed against them until after the qui tam is unsealed.
I will tell you this; by the time a whistleblower has been forced to file a qui tam, the idea of receiveing justice has ceased to exist. And since the employer has made this an issue about money only, you can be damn sure that a whistleblower will squeeze every last penny they possibly can from such a sociopathic corporation.
Based on the consistent behavior of swift and relentless retaliation against anyone who blows the whistle, the best course of action after finding and reporting fraud to the employer one time, is to gather as much evidence as possible, and file a qui tam as soon as possible.
