Philadelphia FCA Whistleblower Attorneys

Home/Philadelphia FCA Whistleblower Attorneys

The False Claims Act (FCA) is the cornerstone of the United States’ efforts to combat fraud on the government. The act provides a legal framework for individuals to come forward with information and blow the whistle on misconduct involving government funds.

While exposing fraud is always encouraged, there are steps and safeguards FCA whistleblowers must take to preserve and strengthen their claims.  The Philadelphia FCA whistleblower attorneys at Miller Shah LLP guide clients through the intricacies of FCA cases, ensuring their rights are protected while aiding in the fight against corruption.  

What Is The False Claims Act?

The False Claims Act, historically known as the “Lincoln Law,” was established during the Civil War as a means to fight back against deceitful contractors defrauding the government. Under its qui tam provision, the FCA allows for individuals, known as whistleblowers or relators, to bring lawsuits on behalf of the government when they have evidence of fraud involving government contracts and programs. The FCA rewards whistleblowers for coming forward by allowing them to share in the financial recoveries resulting from their disclosures.

Rights and Protections for Whistleblowers

Whistleblowers are the linchpin in the enforcement of the FCA, serving as an essential deterrent against the misuse of government funds. Recognizing their critical role, the FCA affords whistleblowers several protections, including:

  • Anonymity during the initial filing stages to safeguard against potential backlash.
  • Protection from retaliation, ensuring that whistleblowers are not subject to adverse employment actions as a result of speaking out.
  • A portion of the recovered funds, offering financial incentives for those who report fraudulent activities.

Through these provisions, the FCA both encourages individuals to speak out against fraud and protects them from adverse outcomes when they do so.

The Importance of Legal Assistance

Exposing fraud against the government is a noble but daunting task that requires significant legal experience. The process involves navigating complex legal systems, gathering compelling evidence, and engaging in protracted litigation, often for many years. FCA cases challenge practices in some of the most powerful industries, including pharmaceuticals, construction, defense, and other multi-billion dollar sectors.  Thus, comprehensive legal support is vital at all stages of the FCA whistleblower process.
