Everyone has heard statistics about the billions of dollars the government loses to fraud each year, such as:
- Medicare and Medicaid Fraud
- Defense Contractor Fraud
- Federal Government Contractor Fraud
- Fraudulently Obtained Loans and Grants
- Tax Fraud
- Investor Fraud
These abuses often go unreported simply because those who see it firsthand fear the repercussions that stepping forward might have on their jobs, careers, and families.
Qui tam lawsuits, under the False Claims Act, give whistleblowers a framework in which they can help put an end to fraud without fearing repercussions from a vindictive employer, vendor, or customer. These suits allow the whistleblower to be rewarded for the professional and personal risks they take to expose fraud that affects patients, soldiers, taxpayers, and other victims.
