Whistleblower & Qui Tam
A whistleblower is a person, mostly an employee, who uncovers illegal details, data, intelligence, or activity within a private, public, or government organization, for example, waste, fraud, or abuse of taxpayer funds, etc. Those who become whistleblowers can decide to take the information or allegations to the surface either internally (within the organization) or externally (to the public eyes or federal state).
Qui Tam is an initialism of the Latin phrase, “Qui tam pro domino rege quam pro se ipso in hac parte sequitur.” which means “He or she who sues in this matter for the king as well as for himself.” The word Quit Tam also means whistleblower. The term is commonly used in the UK or countries that have British influence.

If the company knows who is the whistleblower, he or she might be in danger and need protection. Hiring a whistleblower & Qui Tam lawyer will help you negotiate with witness protection deals and represent you in court.
