There has also been an increase in the number of whistleblowers filing cases under the False Claims Act which allows individuals to report tariff violations on behalf of the Government and to collect a percentage of recovery by the Government. Some of the whistleblowers reside in foreign nations others live here and report the wrongdoers which sometimes include US companies. Products are being shipped from China and routed through Mexico and Canada to try to evade the tariffs. Individuals who have specific and supportable information who report these infractions can yield up to 30% of the Government’s recovery.
