Medicare fraud, Medicaid fraud and defense contractor fraud are only a few examples of illegal activities that cost our federal government millions of dollars every year. If you are aware of fraudulent bills that your employer has submitted to the U.S. government, you could be entitled to compensation and protection under a law known as the federal False Claims Act.

What Is a Qui Tam Lawsuit?

The qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act allow whistleblowers to file lawsuits against companies that submit fraudulent bills to the U.S. government. If the lawsuit is successful, you are rewarded with a percentage of the recovery.

If you are aware of billing fraud by your employer, it's important to contact an experienced qui tam lawyer for the following reasons:

  • To find out if you qualify as whistleblower. To file a qui tam lawsuit, you must have firsthand knowledge of fraudulent activity.
  • To find out if the Justice Department will allow you to pursue your claim.

There are many different kinds of illegal activities that may qualify as false claims against the U.S. government. For example, if a prescription drug company encourages off-label use of a prescription drug, that may be considered a false claim.

Employers who are willing to file fraudulent bills may also be willing to violate your rights as an employee. Attorney William Julien will evaluate your whistleblower case for other violations of Florida and federal law, such as discrimination.

Protecting whistleblowers: Under the False Claims Act, you are protected from adverse employer actions such as termination, transfer, demotion or harassment if you file a qui tam lawsuit.
