False Claims Act
The U.S. Justice Department reports that lawsuits filed under the Federal False Claims Act have recovered more than $33 billion between 1986 and 2012. More than $11 billion of those recoveries have resulted from lawsuits filed by whistleblowers acting under the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act.
The False Claims Act is a congressional act that protects whistleblowers from being persecuted by their employers. It provides compensation to those employees who report wrongdoing by their employer against the federal or state government. TCB Law can walk the employee through the filing of a claim, working with state and federal authorities on the prosecution of these claims and obtaining a recovery for the employee. If you are an employee or you know of someone who is an employee working for a company who is fraudulent billing or diverting money from a state or the federal government call TCB Law and we will be glad to assist in the handling of a claim.
