Whistleblower Law Firm

Whistleblowers are often hesitant to come forward with information that is potentially damaging to their employers due to a fear of retaliation for reporting improper or illegal conduct. Despite the legal protections offer, many still worried about demotions, punishment, unfair job duties, suspension, termination, and other retaliatory action by their employer.

Legal means exist to ensure that whistleblowers working in the public interest are granted whistleblower protections from such consequences as termination or industry blacklisting to help employees come forward when they find their employer is acting in unscrupulous ways, such as actions that are illegal, unhealthy or violate specific public policies.

Additionally, there can be a monetary incentive for acting as a whistleblower when the entity being defrauded is the United States Government. This is especially true when dealing with matters involving Tax Fraud.

In this case, whistleblowers can file a lawsuit acting on the behalf of the injured party. Dating back to the Lincoln administration, the False Claims Act awards a portion of recovered funds to the whistleblower who files the initial claim. These suits are also known as “qui tam” claims.
