What is a Whistleblower Lawsuit?
The Federal Civil False Claims Act (31. U.S.C., Section 3729) states the private citizens can act on behalf of the federal or state government to bring an action against a person or company that acts fraudulently. It is under the False Claims Act that a qui tam (whistleblower) lawsuit entitles individuals employed by the entity guilty of the fraud to bring a lawsuit for fraud-related damages against the offending company.
What Should I do if I know the Government is being Defrauded?
If you know that the government is being defrauded, you may have the right to financial compensation. There is a strong incentive for those who witness fraudulent acts against the federal government to come forward. If you have witnessed fraudulent acts against the government, you have the right to recover between 15-30% of the total amount recovered from the lawsuit.
