Read on as Nashville Whistleblower attorney Timothy L. Miles explains why people love whistleblowers.
THE IMPORTANCE OF WHISTLEBLOWERS
When a company engages in fraud or other unethical practices and no one reports it, everyone loses. Shareholders lose since the company is less successful and less profitable. Customers and clients lose because they are given false or misleading information, so they may buy the wrong product or service. Employees lose because they are given bad information, so they cannot do their job properly, causing them to make more errors or quit their job. On the other hand, if a whistleblower reports fraud or other wrongdoings, the authorities can investigate and punish the people who are responsible for the misconduct.
Whistleblowers are often thanked by companies for bringing wrongdoing to light, but sometimes whistleblowers are fired, demoted, demeaned, or ignored. Fortunately, laws exist providing protections for whistleblowers from whistleblower retaliation and to compensate them for their sacrifice. If you are thinking of blowing the whistle, but are worried about whistleblower retaliation, contact Nashville Whistleblower Attorney Timothy L. Miles today for a free, no-obligation and confidential consultation.
THE POSITIVE IMPACT OF WHISTLEBLOWER LAWSUITS
Whistleblower lawsuits have played a major role in fighting corruption and fraud in the private and government sectors and this is why they are provided strong whistleblower protections against whistleblower retaliation and are entitled to whistleblower awards. These lawsuits have resulted in several successful settlements for whistleblowers. They have also resulted in disciplinary action or termination against guilty parties.
In March 2018, pharmaceutical company Novartis AG agreed to pay a $19 million fine in a False Claims Act settlement. The lawsuit, which was filed by a former employee, claimed that the company had given doctors kickbacks to prescribe Exubera, an inhaled insulin. In December 2017, a hospital in New York agreed to pay $3 million in a False Claims Act settlement. The lawsuit was filed by a former employee who alleged that the hospital had billed Medicare for unnecessary services. 7 In October 2017, a hospital in New Jersey agreed to pay $10 million in a False Claims Act settlement. The lawsuit was filed by a former employee who claimed that the hospital had billed Medicare for unnecessary services.
WHY PEOPLE LOVE WHISTLEBLOWER LAWSUITS
People love whistleblower lawsuits because they are a way to take action when you have a strong sense of what is right and what is wrong. You do not have to just sit back and let injustice happen, you can do something about it. You can help to stop the wrongdoing and hold people accountable for their actions. Because you are taking action, you are also helping to set an example by showing others that they do not have to sit by and watch something illegal happen — they can do something about it as well.
You are also showing your employer that you are not afraid to challenge the status quo.
