Important takeaways from Jason Brown:

What is a whistleblower?

To quote the attorney:

“A whistleblower is an individual who has the courage and integrity to expose something that’s illegal or corrupt on the inside and make it public… but they have to do so in the right manner.”

Beware of “tiplines” and “human resources lines” for reporting unethical behavior.

Call an attorney and go over your options first before you call these types of lines. In some cases, people who call those lines get fired. You need to know the risks before you blow the whistle. In some cases, blowing the whistle won’t affect positive change, but it could result in your termination.

Ask your attorney about anonymity.

It depends on the type of claim you’re filing if you get anonymity from start to finish. Some cases may require you to reveal your identity.

You need an experienced attorney.

If you file your case without notifying the right parties or following the right steps, you could lose your case before it even begins. This type of law has many pitfalls for those unfamiliar with the specific laws.

Most of the cases Brown handles involve the False Claims Act, which involves the federal government and the United States Attorney’s Office. As a former FBI agent, attorney Brown has firsthand experiences working with these entities, giving him unique insight into whistleblower cases.
