Qui Tam (False Claims Act) and Whistleblower Cases
- Do you suspect fraud against the United States government or against the State of New Jersey?
- Are you aware of Medicare or Medicaid fraud at your place of employment? Is your employer violating the Stark Law?
- Do you suspect your employer of tax fraud?
- Have you been fired or demoted because you pointed out violations of the law to your employer?
- Are you a Wall Street employee with evidence of insider trading, investment misrepresentation or violations against SEC laws and regulations?
Pursuant to the False Claims Act, any citizen with appropriate and detailed evidence of fraud is at liberty to bring a lawsuit against a business or a person who is cheating the U.S. government or the government of New Jersey and recover monies on behalf of the government. If the government is successful at recovering funds, the whistleblower will be rewarded with a percentage of the recovery.
The SEC and IRS have their own set of laws and regulations that, if violated, can be grounds for a whistleblower lawsuit.
Whistleblowers are protected under the Whistleblower Protection Act among other federal and state laws from retaliation or termination for reporting the fraud of their employer.
