    Who is a Whistleblower?

    Many of us are familiar with the whistleblowers depicted in Erin Brockavich, The Insider, Silkwood, and Serpico. However, whistleblowing is actually one of the oldest U.S. traditions. For instance, the False Claims Act was enacted in 1863 to punish contractors that provided sick horses, faulty weapons, and spoiled food to the war troops.

    Whistleblowers typically reveal violations of company policies, laws and regulations. They also expose fraud and corruption. They often make their disclosures to supervisors and/or investigation divisions, such as corporate compliance departments or HR departments. Also, many whistleblowers make public disclosures to OSHA and the SEC.
