Bradenton Whistleblower Lawyer

Do you have personal knowledge of your employer defrauding the federal government? If so, you may be able to sue on behalf of the government as a whistleblower. While filing a whistleblower lawsuit gives you the potential to walk away with a large sum of money, it also presents an opportunity to serve your country by cutting government spending waste. Fraud against the government accounts for hundreds of billions of dollars each year and is an ever growing problem as small and large businesses and corporations look to take advantage for their own benefit. Contact the Bradenton whistleblower lawyers of the Pendas Law Firm today to learn more about our services and what we can do for you.

Medicaid and Medicare Fraud

One of the costliest types of fraud is health care fraud, committed by businesses, insurance companies, physicians, and even patients. Healthcare fraud is a growing concern for all, as up to and possibly over $100 billion is taken from the federal government each year through schemes that defraud Medicaid and Medicare, according to the Department of Justice.

Environmental Fraud

The safety and health of employees, the local environment, and even customers of the products that are being made are all at risk when an employer commits environmental fraud. Falsification of reports, illegal handling of hazardous waste, and other types of cost-cutting corners all have detrimental consequences for the people and environment of Bradenton.

Types of Fraud Against the Government

When a company, business, corporation, physician’s office, or any party that uses or bills the federal government commits fraud, they are essentially stealing taxpayer money. Whistleblower laws are the government’s chief tactic in bringing these guilty parties to justice. Common types of defrauding the government include:

  • Defense contractor fraud;
  • Federal student loan fraud;
  • False claims and false settlement fraud;
  • Government construction fraud;
  • Pharmaceutical fraud;
  • Government procurement fraud;
  • Fraudulent loans;
  • S. Customs fraud;
  • Securities fraud;
  • Education fraud; and
  • S. Postal Service fraud.

Florida Whistleblower Act Protects Employees From Employer Retaliation

You receive protection when you file a whistleblower lawsuit or talk to agencies about your employer’s alleged misdeeds because it is illegal for an employer to take retaliatory action against you, such as firing or demoting you. According to Florida statute 112.3187, the intent of the Florida Whistleblower Act is to protect employees from adverse retaliatory actions by their employer when they report employer violations such as dangers to the public’s health, safety, or welfare, and when their employer has made improper use of “governmental office, gross waste of funds, or any other abuse or gross neglect of duty.” If your employer has retaliated against you in any way after you have brought forth allegations against them to an appropriate agency, contact an lawyer at once, as you may be eligible to file a civil lawsuit against your employer.
