Question: What laws protect me against retaliation if I report Medicaid fraud?
State and federal False Claims Acts prohibit employers from harassing or retaliating against employees for attempting to expose Medicaid fraud.
If you are a whistleblower and your employer retaliates against you, a Medicaid fraud attorney can often help you recover:
- Double back pay for lost wages
- General damages for your emotional distress
- Punitive damages to punish your employer
- Attorney's fees
