Philadelphia Qui Tam Attorneys
Representing Your Rights as a Whistleblower
The federal government allows private citizens to be rewarded for exposing
fraudulent activity on behalf of the government. Under the Federal False
Claims Act, a whistleblower can bring forth a qui tam lawsuit and receive
a portion of the compensation if they helped the government recover funds
lost to fraud or other misconduct. In addition, the False Claims Act also provides
job protection against employer retaliation. Qui tam lawsuits are highly sensitive in nature, and must be navigated
with care and caution.
