Whistleblower Lawsuits

Corporations don’t always do the right thing. Sometimes, it takes someone with inside knowledge of the wrongdoing to help make things right. Under the False Claims Act, any private citizen can sue any person or entity that is defrauding the government. This is called a qui tam, or whistleblower, lawsuit.

Under the False Claims Act, you are protected for speaking out against companies that are committing a variety of offenses, including:

  • Overcharging the government
  • Submitting false information on a government loan application
  • Seeking payment for goods and services outside of contractual or regulatory requirements
  • Seeking payment for defective goods or services that were lesser quality than agreed upon in a contract
  • Attempting to pay less to the government than the contractually agreed-upon amount
  • Fraudulently seeking out a government contract
  • Submitting a false claim to argue that the defendant complied with an existing contract, regulation or law

These whistleblower laws, which date back to the time of the Civil War, were put in place to encourage people to expose waste, fraud, and abuse. If your case is successful, you can be awarded anywhere between 15% and 30% of the total collected proceeds. In some cases, the award amount can be quite significant.

The experienced lawyers at Slack Davis Sanger have a thorough understanding of how to apply the False Claims Act, state whistleblower laws, and the extensive set of federal laws with whistleblower protections to help you expose fraudulent activity and potentially obtain compensation for your efforts.
