Whistleblower Lawsuits - Qui Tam

Do you have first-hand knowledge that your employer is defrauding the federal, state, or city government? That your employer is ripping off taxpayers, or otherwise wasting taxpayer money? If so, the first thing you need to do is call a lawyer and learn how you can both help stop taxpayer fraud, and be compensated for your efforts.

The federal False Claims Act makes it illegal for individuals or businesses to defraud government programs. For example, if your employer is getting government reimbursements from a program like Medicare or Medicaid, those reimbursements must be correctly reported. If your employer is engaging in business with the government and billing for it, those bills must be accurate. If not, your employer is stealing money from the American taxpayer. Not only are they liable for what they have stolen, but you are also eligible for compensation for your part in ending fraud on the taxpayer. Versions of the False Claims Act not exist on state and city levels as well, meaning that fraud on any government program, federal, state, or local, is both illegal and may provide you with compensation for reporting it. In legal terms, these are known as “qui tam” lawsuits – suits in which a whistleblower is rewarded for blowing the whistle.

Alan Serrins and the attorneys at Beranbaum Menken recognize that blowing the whistle, while the right thing to do, can be an intimidating experience. The law recognizes this reality too, and that’s why whistleblowers may be compensated under the law and cases are filed under “seal.” Our lawyers will guide you through this process, one step at a time, from your initial, confidential consultation with our firm, to the building of a case, and eventually to settlement or verdict.

If you think your employer is up to something shady, or is helping him or herself to taxpayer money, the first thing to do is call an experienced whistleblower attorney at Serrins & Associates. Don’t do it yourself – this is often not only futile; it can put both your job and the case against your employer on the line. Similarly, before you decide to involve another state agency like DOI, you need to speak to a lawyer.

Whistleblower law is complex, but it is also fair and equitable. By working with one of the lawyers at Serrins & Associates, you can help build a case that both ends employer wrongdoing and gives you real compensation for your efforts.
