New York Whistleblower Attorney
New York City Qui Tam Lawyer
As an employee you want to do what is best for the company or individual you work for. However, if you are aware of any fraud or criminal activity your employer is engaging in against the government, you should report it.
Under the False Claims Act a person can, in a private lawsuit called a "qui tam" action, sue the company or individual in violation of a government regulation. The person is commonly referred to as a "whistleblower." You may be rewarded for exposing the wrongdoing by getting a percentage of any amounts recovered in the lawsuit, including attorney fees.
