Qui Tam And Other Whistleblower Lawsuits
Many people hesitate to report fraud for fear of losing their jobs and livelihoods. It takes a great deal of courage do the right thing. Remember that when you report fraud, negligence or wrongdoing at work, you are not only upholding high standards of ethics and integrity for yourself — you are also helping protect others from becoming the victim of this wrongdoing in the future.

The False Claims Act
The False Claims Act is a federal law that allows private individuals or employees to file actions against federal contractors claiming fraud against the government. Under the federal False Claims Act, a private citizen may sue an individual or business that is defrauding the government and recover funds on the government's behalf.
The False Claims Act provides incentive to the individual reporting the fraud or misconduct by granting them between 15 percent and 25 percent of any award or settlement amount, as well as attorneys' fees. Once a person has evidence of fraud against the government and decides to blow the whistle, he or she needs to seek representation from a qualified attorney.
