Whistleblower Actions

Litigation And Pursuit Of Whistleblower Actions

The federal False Claims Act ("FCA") was enacted by Congress in 1863 to stop war profiteering by corrupt contractors. A majority of states now have false claims acts as well, which reward whistleblowers for their contribution in putting an end to a fraud committed against the government.

All whistleblower statutes were enacted to protect taxpayers from fraud. In return for providing crucial information about fraud, successful whistleblowers can receive a percentage of the Government's recovery in an enforcement action. Fraud against the government takes many forms, from false Medicare and Medicaid claims to tax fraud.
