False Claims Act (Qui Tam)

What is a qui tam lawsuit?

If your employer is engaging in activity that cheats or defrauds the government, a whistleblower may have a claim under the False Claims Act. The False Claims Act allows the whistleblower to file a lawsuit in the name of the government and the government can investigate the allegations. If the lawsuit is successful and the government recoups funds that were wrongfully expended, the whistleblower is entitled to a portion of the recovery, usually a percentage. Again, whistleblowers are protected by law from retaliation.  If you believe you are at risk of being fired or have already been fired for blowing the whistle, contact a Columbus False Claims Act attorney immediately.
