Reporting fraud can be complex and not without risk. Therefore, it is important to speak with as experienced whistleblower lawyer before reporting information about any wrongdoing.
A whistleblower’s privacy is important and the attorney client privilege keeps all discussions confidential and allows an evaluation of your case private. There are many laws that protect whistleblowers, one of the most common is the False Claims Act.
The False Claims Act rewards whistleblowers who report fraud against the government and protects whistleblowers from workplace retaliation. Claims, called qui tam lawsuits, are filed under seal to allow the government the opportunity to intervene in the claim. If the government intervenes, the whistleblower may be received an award of up to 25% of any recovery.
