The news has been filled lately with stories about whistleblowers getting staggeringly big pay outs for exposing wrong-doing at their workplaces. On Tuesday, Associated Press reported that former UBS banker Bradley Birkenfeld got what may be the largest award ever -- $104 million from the Internal Revenue Service for his tips on a massive tax fraud conspiracy at UBS. Earlier this year, Linda Szymoniak made news earlier this year when she and five other American workers were awarded $46.5 million for blowing the whistle on abuses by the major banks.
