Lawsuits filed by whistleblowers, also known as qui tam lawsuits, can help hold the appropriate parties responsible for their actions. Recent changes to the False Claims Act have reduced the number of obstacles for filing a qui tam lawsuit. This was done as a way to encourage more whistleblowers to come forward in the future. Additionally, the False Claims Act protects whistleblowers from retaliation on the part of the accused parties and awards whistleblowers with compensation if the defendants do not comply.
The healthcare and defense-contracting sectors are examples of industries within which fraud may occur. Whistleblowers have recently filed qui tam lawsuits alleging that their employers or other entities were:
- Purposefully overcharging the government for goods and services.
- Billing the government for goods and services that were never provided
- Lying and making false statements to get out of paying a debt.
- Making inaccurate claims in an attempt to receive money from the government they were not rightfully owed.
The IRS has established a program to help to reward whistleblowers for bringing tax fraud cases to light. Contact an Oklahoma whistleblower lawyer today to learn more about the program and whether you may potentially be entitled to 15 to 30 percent of the total amount recovered by the IRS if your qui tam lawsuit is successful.
