In US, Whistle blower Law is firmly in place. There are various different provisions and it depends who you are, i.e. a member of public or a employee of a Government, etc. You may have references from http://www.hg.org/whistleblower.html
For general purpose knowledge, the Finance false claims are mostly dealt with sections 3729-3733.
I hope this helps...
