Question: How do I know if I have a good whistleblower case?
Good whistleblower cases have either (1) well-documented evidence of significant government fraud or (2) clear proof that you have been a victim of whistleblower retaliation after engaging in a protected whistleblower activity.
There are many federal and state laws that provide whistleblower protections and rewards. The most important are the state and federal False Claims Acts.
The False Claims Act is a whistleblower law that rewards private citizens who blow the whistle on individuals and entities that knowingly submit false or fraudulent claims for payment to the government. The most common examples of good whistleblower cases include healthcare fraud, Medicare fraud, Medicaid fraud, and all other types of billing fraud against any federally-funded contract or program.
Like many whistleblower protection laws, the False Claims Act has whistleblower anti-retaliation provisions that create strong whistleblower rights.
Whistleblower anti-retaliation provisions protect you against whistleblower retaliation. Whistleblower retaliation occurs when your employer fires you or subjects you to any discrimination or harassment after you blow the whistle or oppose government fraud.
Whistleblower cases are always complex. Whistleblower cases always require a detailed analysis.
There are many whistleblower laws that could apply to your case. As a result, you should always speak with an experienced whistleblower attorney if you think you may have a good case.
