California Whistleblowers Earn Large Cash Awards
Federal and state False Claims Acts offer cash incentives to California residents who are the first to report inside knowledge of fraud against the U.S. government. Our California whistleblowers might include:
- Sales representatives
- Executives and others
Significant cash whistleblower awards are available to those who have access to cases of defense contractor fraud, Medicare fraud, California Medicaid Fraud and securities violations via the False Claims Act (California State and Federal) and SEC whistleblower programs.
These programs pay whistleblowers between 10% and 30% of the total recovery amount when the whistleblower’s original information leads to a settlement or verdict.
Because corporate fraud often involves millions in stolen dollars, whistleblower cash awards are frequently in the hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars range.

California Defense Contractor Whistleblowers Paid To Report Fraud
In 2015, the government awarded nearly 68 thousand defense contracts worth over $31 billion dollars to California companies like:
- Mckesson Corporation
- Health Net Federal Services
- Lockheed Martin
- General Atomic Technologies
- General Atomics Aeronautical Systems
- Jacobs Engineering Group
- Northrop Grumman Systems Corporation
- National Steel & Shipbuilding Company
Companies performing services paid for by funds from the U.S. Department of Defense must adhere to a strict set of guidelines on fund distribution and production standards. When these companies do not comply with contractual standards – and subsequently bill the government for payment – they violate the federal False Claims Act.
Examples of defense contractor activity that violates the federal False Claims Act includes:
- False reports for labor, equipment or materials costs
- Using substandard or refurbished materials
- Buy American violations
- Accounting misrepresentation
- Cross-charging (from fixed-price to cost-plus contracts)
- Cybersecurity failures or non-reported breaches
- Truth in Negotiation Act (TINA) violations
California defense contractor fraud whistleblower lawyer Brian Mahany and the California-based MahanyLaw team fight to protect the rights of California whistleblowers.
