Nationally ranked top whistleblower lawyers at Miller Law Group fight to protect whistleblowers’ rights.
Whistleblowers who report fraud and wrongdoing are entitled to protection under various state and federal statutes. For example, whistleblowers who report fraud against government programs are protected by the False Claims Act.
The most common claims under the False Claims Act included cases involving Medicare Fraud, Medicaid Fraud, Government Contract Fraud and Federal Grant Fraud.
Since most fraud is reported by inside employees, the False Claims Act protects employee whistleblowers from retaliation by their employers. Damages may include: job reinstatement, two times back pay, special damages and attorneys’ fees. The False Claims Act also rewards whistleblowers for reporting the fraud by allowing whistleblower to receive up to 25% of any recovery.
It is important for whistleblowers to speak with an experienced whistleblower lawyer prior to reporting the fraud or wrongdoing. Miller Law Group has experience representing whistleblower in a variety of business sectors.
