Read on to learn three things you should know if you are thinking of blowing the whistle.
DO YOU NEED EVIDENCE TO BE A WHISTLEBLOWER?
Yes, you will need strong supporting evidence to file a qui tam lawsuit. The evidence you collect must clearly display the entity committing the fraud, the amount stolen, and any other relevant information pertaining to the crime at hand. Many whistleblowers have collected financial statements, emails, and memorandums, but others have taken an extra step and used a personal recording device to collect evidence. While this is not necessary in all cases, it is important to collect as much evidence as you can to ensure that your case can help expose the corruption. For more information on the type of information you need and how to obtain it, contact Nashville Whistleblower attorney Timothy L. Miles.
CAN A WHISTLEBLOWER BE FIRED?
Whistleblowers are granted protections from retaliation under the FCA, including demotion, termination, suspension, denial of benefits, and any other retaliatory behavior. If an unethical organization attempts to retaliate against you despite these protections for whistleblowers, you can file a lawsuit against them and recover the damages their actions have caused.
However, it is important to act quickly if you do experience retaliation. Time is of the essence in these situations, and you’ll need to prove that you were fired as a result of the qui tam lawsuit you were a part of. Waiting to file a whistleblower lawsuit can make your case weaker and potentially cause you to lose it altogether, so it is important to speak with a qualified whistleblower attorney. Call Nashville Whistleblower attorney Timothy L. Miles today.
CAN YOU REMAIN ANONYMOUS AS A WHISTLEBLOWER?
The False Claims Act requires that a qui tam lawsuit be kept “under seal” while the case is under investigation. This means that anyone other than the U.S. Department of Justice, the U.S. attorney, and the assigned judge of the District Court cannot view the details of your case until the case becomes unsealed. If you have any concerns about your anonymity during this process, it’s a good idea to speak with a whistleblower attorney and learn more about the laws that will affect your case.
