Skilled Guidance in Resolving a Whistleblower Issue

Every year, state and federal governments lose millions of dollars due to Medicare and Medicaid fraud, defense contractor fraud, and other types of false claims. If you work for a company that submits fraudulent bills to the government, you could be entitled to compensation as a whistleblower. These cases are covered by the False Claims Act and are known as qui tam lawsuits.

At the law firm of Joshua M. Bloom & Associates, P.C., we represent whistleblowers in Pittsburgh and Western Pennsylvania. In addition to qui tam lawsuits, we handle cases of financial fraud under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act as well as Pennsylvania laws that provide compensation to whistleblowers. We offer an initial consultation to evaluate your case and explain your options.

What Is a Qui Tam Lawsuit?

The qui tam provisions of the federal False Claims Act allow whistleblowers to file lawsuits against companies that defraud the government. If the lawsuit is successful, the whistleblower is rewarded with a percentage of the recovery. The False Claims Act also protects whistleblowers from acts of retaliation by their employer.

Who Can Be a Whistleblower?

To be a whistleblower, you must have firsthand knowledge of fraud committed against the government. Most whistleblowers are either government employees or employees of companies doing business with the government. If you have knowledge of fraud against the government, we encourage you to seek advice from one of our lawyers to see if you are eligible to be a whistleblower.

Our attorneys have many years of experience in handling employment law disputes of all types, including whistleblower cases. We will listen closely to your story and advise you accordingly on the next steps to take.
