Fort Myers Whistleblower Lawyer

What do you do when you find out that your employer is taking illegal actions to defraud a government organization? Discovering something like healthcare fraud, military defense contractor fraud, or fraud against federal mortgage programs can be a daunting realization. You may fear for your career and your future employment in the field. Both fears are well justified, as one would assume any major company would certainly take retaliatory actions against an employee that spoke out against it. However, the Whistleblower Protection Program helps ensure that no retaliatory measure are taken by an employer when an employee files a whistleblower lawsuit against them for defrauding the government. Not only can you expect to receive somewhere between 15 and 25 percent of the lawsuit profit if the lawsuit is successful, but you can rest assured that you will have full and complete protection during the entire process. The Whistleblower Protection Program of the Occupational Safety and Health Organization protects employees from being fired, demoted, or negatively affect the employee’s career in the future. If you know of illegal misdeeds that your employer has taken to defraud the government, contact an experienced Fort Myers whistleblower lawyer immediately. We handle whistleblower cases involving:

  • IRS Fraud/Tax Evasion;
  • Overbilling Medicare/Medicaid;
  • TARP Funds Fraud;
  • Failing to pay overtime benefits when they are due;
  • Defense Contract Overcharging;
  • Aerospace Contract Overcharging;
  • Pharmaceutical/Health Care Fraud; and
  • Violating an Environmental Protection Law.

The Federal False Claims Act

The False Claims Act is the federal government’s foremost tool with which to cut down on corporate fraud and save taxpayers’ dollars. There is a considerable incentive not only for employees to keep an eye on their employer’s actions (illegal actions), but the Act is also a deterrent for employers to go ahead with illegal and fraudulent acts because they know that all eyes are on them. According to The National Law Review, there were 700 whistleblower lawsuits filed in 2014, some for as much as $418 million. At the highest, a whistleblower will be awarded with 30 percent of the profit. And, according to the U.S. Department of Justice, the federal government recovered $38.9 billion from 1987 to 2013 under the False Claims Act, the majority of which due to independent whistleblowers.
