Miller Law Group has experience representing whistleblowers who report fraud against the government. The False Claims Act allows those who report fraud to receive a percentage of any recovery. The Act also protects whistleblowers from workplace retaliation for reporting the fraud.
Claims, or qui tam lawsuits, are file under seal (meaning in secrete) to allow the government to investigate the claim to determine whether to intervene. If the government intervenes, the government takes responsibility for pursuing the claim. When the government intervenes, the whistleblower may receive up to 25% of any recovery.
