Weiser Law Firm Whistleblower Litigation
We know that the decision to come forward and report fraud is not an easy one. Let’s talk about it.
Companies defrauding government programs and projects hurt us all. Every year, billions of misappropriated tax dollars end up in the wrong hands due to fraud, leaving less money for such things as healthcare programs like Medicare and TRICARE or funding military and infrastructure improvement projects, which benefit us all.
For some, though, fraud is all too personal. Every day, we work with conscientious, hard-working people being made to do illegal things just to keep their jobs; nurses forced to exaggerate symptoms or time spent with patients, salespeople pressured to misrepresent products or bribe gatekeepers and decision makers… the list goes on. The only way to stop fraud is to report it. We can help.
False Claims – Qui Tam
The False Claims Act (“FCA”) is a federal law under which the government prosecutes individuals and companies who defraud government spending programs. This fraud can take many forms, such as healthcare providers overbilling Medicare for services, or contractors overcharging the Department of Defense, for example, for supplies.
The Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and Commodity Futures Trading Commission (“CFTC”), two government agencies that regulate the U.S. financial market, have whistleblower programs that incentivize individuals to report potential violations of federal securities laws, or “financial fraud.” To be eligible for an award under these programs, a whistleblower must provide the SEC or CFTC with original information about a possible violation of the securities laws that leads to a successful enforcement action and sanctions exceeding $1 million.
The U.S. Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) offers rewards for information that leads to the prosecution of companies and individuals who fail to pay taxes owed. The IRS can award whistleblowers up to 30 percent of the tax recovered, penalty and other amounts it collects from successful prosecutions.
