Whistleblowers who report fraud may be entitled to protection and compensation under the False Claims Act.

The False Claims Act was created to incentivize whistleblowers to report fraud against government programs by allow the whistleblower to receive a percent of any recovery.

There are also provisions in the False Claims Act that protect whistleblowers from workplace retaliation for reporting fraud. Damages may include reinstatement of employment, two times loss of pay, attorney’s fees and special damages.

To protect your rights under the False Claims Act, whistleblowers should speak with an experienced whistleblower attorney prior to reporting the fraud.

Although any fraud against the government may qualify under the False Claims Act, the most common areas are Medicare and Medicaid fraud and government contract fraud.
