Whistleblowers Protect Yourselves
Know Your Rights: We strongly suggest that every whistleblower obtain information about their rights. The Whistleblower Handbook: A Step-by-Step Guide to Doing What's Right and Protecting Yourself is the essential reference guide for whistleblowers. We strongly recommend that you obtain a copy of this book. It should be available at your local library or bookstore. Click here for information about the Handbook, and how to purchase it on-line from the National Whistleblowers Center. Also visit KKC's Know Your Rights page.

Qualify for Whistleblower Rewards: KKC is in the forefront of fighting to ensure the whistleblower reward laws are effective. KKC representes Swiss Bank whistleblower Bradley Birkenfeld in his IRS whistleblower reward case. Mr. Birkenfeld’s unprecedented disclosure resulted in cracking the illegal offshore Swiss bank system and has already resulted in over $5billion recovered for U.S. Taxpayers and a reward of $104 million for Mr. Birkenfeld.
There are now five powerful whistleblower reward statutes. These laws recognize the importance of encouraging employees who risk their careers by making them eligible for potential large and, at times, multi-million dollar rewards. KKC’s success in helping employees blow the whistle and obtain rewards is unprecedented.
We strongly recommend that you contact KKC confidentially to determine if you qualify for rewards for reporting violations of the following laws:
- IRS tax fraud/underpayment
- Government contracting and procurement
- Securities fraud
- Commodities fraud
- The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act
- State False Claims Acts (These exist in over half of the states in the U.S.)
