Defending Employers Against Whistleblower And Qui Tam Claims
As an employer, you are subject to numerous complex rules and regulations. It’s all too easy to run afoul of these laws.
Employees are often the ones to report violations. Workers who raise allegations of employer wrongdoing are entitled to protection under federal law, including protection from retaliation. In certain cases, they also have the ability to initiate a whistleblower lawsuit (called a qui tam claim) against you on behalf of the federal government.
Protecting Your Business And Reputation
If your business is facing a whistleblower claim, or if you’ve been accused of fraudulent activity in the workplace, don’t make a bad situation worse by failing to enlist the appropriate legal help.
