Best Practices for Whistleblowers

Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.

Many people have become whistleblowers.

Here’s a list of best practices based on their experience:

Find a lawyer before you become a whistleblower.

Choose one carefully after proper research and one that works on a contingency basis.

Maintain anonymity throughout the case and for as long as possible.

Gather as much information as you can about the case before submitting it.

Set aside time for the process as there will be many calls and meetings.

Keep the case confidential and don’t talk with anyone other than your attorney and the authorities about it.

It’s important to move quickly on cases as evidence can disappear.

The longer you wait the harder it will be to make the case stick.

Don’t let the size of the company or the status of the perpetrator dissuade you from blowing the whistle.  

Most often you have a strong case and the authorities have tools to bring about justice.

Consider these points in your whistleblower case.
