If you believe you have evidence of fraud being committed against the U.S. government but are worried about retaliation on the part of the potential defendant, Congress has made several amendments to the False Claims Act to protect whistleblowers from such retaliation.
Additionally, depending on the circumstances surrounding the case, you could be eligible to receive a percentage of the recovery for bringing the acts of fraud to light. Contact Attorney Group for Texas today to learn more about your legal options and to take the first steps in informing the government of the potential case of fraud it may be facing.
If your employer or another entity attempts to receive money not rightfully owed, they may be faced with a qui tam lawsuit if a whistleblower steps forward with information pertaining to the fraud. Additionally, some qui tam lawsuits are filed on the grounds that an individual knowingly overcharged or overbilled the government for goods or services that were never actually provided or delivered to the government. In general, any action that is taken involving misrepresentation, lying, stealing, or otherwise altering facts could be grounds for a qui tam lawsuit. Contact a Texas whistleblower lawyer today for more information and to determine whether you have a case.
If you have evidence of tax fraud, you may be entitled to pursue a case under a program established by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). If your case is successful, the IRS could reward you with 15 to 30 percent of its recovery for your efforts. A Texas whistleblower lawyer can help determine if you are eligible to receive this reward and can assist you in pursuing your case.
Because the accused party may attempt to retaliate against you with threats, reduced hours, reduced pay, or other methods of harassment, is important to seek representation from a Texas whistleblower lawyer. A Texas whistleblower lawyer can help protect you and assist in recovering the financial reward to which you may be entitled.
