False Claims Act, Qui Tam & Whistle-Blower Claims
False Claims Act lawsuits are brought by individuals on behalf of the government to protect the general public from fraud and abuse by private entities. Often employees find themselves in a work setting where they discover conduct by their supervisors or co-workers that is illegal or fraudulent.
Most employees are fearful of complaining to their supervisors about these actions and are concerned about job security if they report the fraud. The False Claims Act (“FCA”) and comparable state laws allow us to represent such individuals in a confidential manner, with the assistance of the government in bringing claims against these companies. If the government recovers any money, the employee is often entitled to receive a significant portion of the recovery.
