The qui tam provision of the False Claims Act allows an individual with evidence of fraud to sue a wrongdoer on the government’s behalf. Our firm brings lawsuits through whistleblowers on behalf of state and federal governments. Whistleblowers may recover up to 30% of the judgment obtained in the action against the wrongdoer.
The State of North Carolina permits individuals to file a lawsuit when fraud has occurred against the State. In these cases, the whistleblower is eligible to receive 15%-30% of the recovery. The IRS, SEC, Commodity Futures Trading Commission, and the Motor Vehicle Safety Whistleblower Act also provide avenues for individuals to make claims on behalf of the government.
As a whistleblower, you are protected. Whistleblowers receive protection under state and federal Law. The lawsuit is filed under seal and the whistleblower is protected from retaliatory action such as discharge, demotion, suspension, threat, harassment, or any other discriminatory action.
Our firm understands the state and federal whistleblower laws. We have a reputation and track record of successfully pursuing cases where fraud has occurred against the government. If you think you may have a reason to blow the whistle, contact our office for a free and confidential consultation.
