Whistleblower Claims & Qui Tam Laws in Port St. Lucie
Whistleblower laws (also called qui tam laws) allow employees to bring lawsuits against companies on behalf of the United States government. For instance, if you witness accounting fraud at work, you may be able to take your case to court on behalf of the government. Additionally, qui tam laws disallow your company or business to fire you as a form of retaliation. Whistleblowers are also protected from salary deductions, harassment, transfers and demotions.
Common whistleblower suits involve:
- Accounting fraud
- Government waste
- Government abuse
- Complaints to government agencies
- Illegal harassment
- Discrimination at work
- Consumer fraud
- Unfair trade practices
- Price fixing
The U.S. adopted its first whistleblower law in 1863 under the United States False Claims Act to combat supplier fraud during the American Civil War, when changes to the law in 1943 caused its use to nearly disappear. The act was revised and revitalized in 1986. Since then, qui tam law has evolved into a complicated network of laws and statutes. In order to successfully navigate these laws and assert your rights, you will need the counsel of an experienced whistleblower attorney.
