Whistleblower Law

Whistleblower Law in Birmingham

Protecting Individuals Who Wish to Disclose Sensitive Information

If you’ve come across information that indicates your employer or another company is committing financial crimes, it’s your responsibility to report it to the relevant agency, whether it’s the IRS or SEC. You may even get handsomely paid if the information you provide leads a government agency to the crime and subsequent prosecution.

It can be a frightening prospect to reveal the illegal acts of a company due to fear of retaliation if they discover you reported the information. It also can sometimes be a challenge to collect the reward you’re due.

The best way to become a whistleblower is with experienced legal counsel by your side. Our attorneys at Montgomery Ponder have taken on some of the most complex cases in the country, and we are very familiar with protecting and guiding whistleblowers through the needed steps and helping them collect the financial reward they deserve.

IRS Whistleblowers

Anyone who discovers information that leads to the successful prosecution of tax fraud can be rewarded as an IRS whistleblower. The reward can be up to 30 percent of the additional taxes, penalties, and any other amount collected by the IRS based on the information provided. If you’re looking at becoming an IRS whistleblower, we can help you.

SEC Whistleblowers

The SEC is the government agency designed to oversee fair business practices, with a mission statement that reads:

“The missing of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is to protect investors, maintain fair, orderly, and efficient markets, and facilitate capital formation.”

If you discover information indicating that a business or individual is violating corporate law, you can participate in the SEC Whistleblower Program to ensure that:

  • You are kept safe from the ramifications
  • Your identity is protected, and you remain anonymous
  • You receive the reward you deserve

SEC Whistleblowers can earn up to 30% of the monetary sanctions collected by the SEC after an enforcement action facilitated by your information. The SEC receives thousands of anonymous tips and doesn’t have the resources to investigate each one. The best way to make sure your data is evaluated and that you qualify for the program is with a knowledgeable attorney by your side.

Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) Whistleblowers

The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) of 1977 makes it illegal for any individual or corporation to bribe any foreign officials to gain a business advantage. Sadly, many companies do it anyway. If you encounter information indicating your employer or another business has committed this crime, you may be eligible to participate in a whistleblower program and recover a significant reward if your information leads to prosecution and monetary penalties.
