Corporate fraud costs businesses in the United States an estimated $3.5 trillion each year, according to the Association of Certified Fraud Examiner’s “Report to the Nations on Occupational Fraud and Abuse.” The financial losses attributable to this kind of fraud within corporations affects job creation, employment rates, worker incentives, and a host of other factors that make for a thriving economy. Significantly, the fraud examiners noted that the best way to identify this kind of destructive fraud was insiders alerting them to it. In other words, whistleblowers.
Whistleblowers are equally effective when the fraud they are witnessing is by their employer against a governmental entity. Overcharging for products or services contracted to the government, doctoring statements to reflect inaccurate accounting, and substituting lower quality products than the ones charged for in building projects are just a few examples of the ways businesses have taken advantage of their relationship with the government. Blowing the whistle on fraud of this type may be an intimidating thing to take on, but laws are in place that provide protections as well as financial incentives for workers who choose to do so.
