If you are a whistleblower, you need tenacious and knowledgeable representation to preserve your rights, earn rewards, and uphold judgments. We represent those who stand up for truth; we work with a ferocity that makes wrong-doers cower.
Hire an attorney when you want to stop an entity from defrauding the government, known as a qui tam lawsuit. This type of legal action allows average citizens to sue a private entity for allegedly defrauding the U.S. government, even if the action did not harm the petitioner. The first person who files may be eligible for a whistleblower reward.
This law is designed to encourage people to report fraud and corruption, and has helped the government recover $20 billion. These courageous suits against fraud can result in rewards ranging from several thousands of dollars to millions. Common types of cases include:
- Health care fraud
- Medicare and Medicaid fraud
- Fraudulent billing
- Securities fraud
- Tax fraud
- Underpayment of oil, mineral and gas royalties from public lands
- Defense procurement and contracts
- Fraudulent charges by pharmaceutical companies, laboratories and hospital corporations
These suits must be filed quickly because rewards are given only to the first person who successfully blows the whistle.
Another type of whistleblower action involves reporting fraud at a company for which you work. Perhaps you have insider knowledge of wrongdoing, or were asked to participate in unlawful activities. If you refuse to participate, or if you speak out, you may face reprisal. This practice is egregious and must be countered with swift and decisive legal action.
We represent our clients with vigor and skillfulness to make threats and harassment stop. My team and I protect those who wish to speak out but fear punishment, as well as workers already facing persecution by such means as:
- Wrongful termination
We react forcefully to discrimination, fearlessly backing our clients with strong documentation and evidence – and we win cases.
Whistleblower laws protect those who speak out within the company or publicly against alleged misconduct that includes:
- Breaking laws, regulations or rules
- Actions that harm public health, safety or interest
The Law Office of Mark A. Sanders understands that choosing to blow the whistle on your company is a very serious matter that can have tremendous repercussions. Workers can be bullied, ostracized, denied promotions, and even fired for ostensibly unrelated reasons. Our law firm takes every step possible to protect workers who report wrongdoing, and those who face punishment for bringing unlawful actions out into the open.
Certainly there are laws to protect those who report misdeeds, including the False Claims Act, which has been on the books since 1863; the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002; and the Dodd-Frank Act of 2010.
However, there is a notorious and insidious “shoot the messenger” mentality within organizations that can make the work environment hostile, yet be difficult to prove. That is why you need a highly skilled law team to demonstrate the harm against you and correct it. We seek justice and full legal protection for our clients.
Whether you wish to file a qui tam lawsuit for the greater public good, or report wrongdoings within your own organization, our law firm is knowledgeable, assertive and experienced. Call us to discuss your case for free. We will explain your rights and options.
