Expose Government Fraud by Your Employer

When an employee witnesses or discovers that their employer has violated the law, they have the right to come forward without fear of retaliation. Such employees are typically referred to as “whistleblowers” are protected from employer retaliation.

In cases of government fraud, whistleblowers may be able to participate in a qui tam action against the employer under the False Claims Act. This means they may sue the employer on behalf of the government. If this case is successful, the employee would be entitled to a percentage of the recovery.

Reporting Employer Fraud and Wrongdoing

The False Claims act was created to both discourage corporate fraud and reward reporters, or whistleblowers. There are many ways that employers attempt to defraud the U.S. government, and whistleblowing is how employees and taxpayers can fight back.

Employers can also commit other forms of wrongdoing in the workplace that, while not classified as fraud, still rise to the level of whistleblowing if reported.

Some common forms of fraud and wrongdoing employers can commit include:

  • Tax evasion
  • Failing to pay earned overtime
  • Producing and marketing dangerous products
  • Contract overcharging
  • Overbilling or billing for unperformed services
  • Fraudulent use of TARP Funds
  • Bribery, embezzlement, and other forms of corruption
  • Permitting or perpetrating unsafe work conditions
  • Allowing or acting out discrimination or sexual harassment

Whistleblowers who report their employer's violations are protected under the False Claims Act. They also may be entitled to compensation, particularly if they assist the government in recovering funds.

Your Protections Under the Florida Whistleblowers Act

The Florida Whistleblowers Act, which is covered by Section 112.187 of the Florida Statutes, offers protection to employees who witness and report government fraud by their employers. Employers are prohibited from retaliating against such employees for reporting or refusing to take part in fraudulent acts. They cannot take any “adverse personnel action,” including wrongfully firing, suspending, transferring, or demoting such an employee.

A whistleblower who has been discriminated or retaliated against may be eligible for the following types of relief:

  • Job reinstatement
  • Compensation for lost wages or benefits
  • Payment of attorney’s fees
