Don’t Get Hurt for Doing the Right Thing
While many people associate the idea of a ‘whistleblower’ with instances like the Watergate scandal that make front-page headlines, most whistleblower lawsuits never end up in the news at all.
The most common type of “whistleblower” lawsuit is a False Claims Act suit, also called Qui Tam.
In these lawsuits, an individual with knowledge of organization’s activities provides information to the authorities about fraud, corruption or other illegal activity that harms the federal government. The individuals who bring this knowledge forward may be entitled to a certain amount of financial recovery under the False Claims Act.
Qui Tam whistleblower claims and False Claims Act suits usually involve everyday Americans who stumble upon evidence or knowledge of fraud being perpetuated against the state or federal government. These whistleblowers are often employees, former employees, and others who have access to company documents and internal information.
Many types of fraud may be discovered, including Medicaid fraud, Medicare fraud, defense contractor fraud, or construction contract fraud.
