Whistleblowers who report fraud are entitled to protection under the False Claims Act. An experienced whistleblower lawyer will know how to protect a whistleblower from workplace retaliation, and even potentially recovery a monetary award.
North Carolina whistleblower may be entitled to receive a percentage of any recover under both the North Carolina False Claims Act and the federal False Claims Act. However, it is essential that a whistleblower comply with requirements of the FCA to be eligible for an award. For example, the “Original Source Rule” can potentially disqualify a whistleblower from receiving a monetary reward.
Claims under the False Claims Act are call qui tam lawsuits and are filed under seal (in secrete), but the lawsuit must comply with specific filing requirements or could result in dismissal of the claim.
