A common question from whistleblowers is “I participated in the fraud because I was required to as part of my employment. Will the government hold me liable for my employer’s fraud?” and “is whistleblower immunity available?”
It is not uncommon for a whistleblower to have participated in the fraud government in some way. This is so because in many cases the fraud is conducted in the employment setting. Sometimes the whistleblower is unaware their acts were fraudulent at the time they performed. Other times the failure to participate in the fraud would threaten the whistleblower’s job security. Mr. Wolfe protects whistleblowers and has the expertise to assist you with these issues and provide you with the information you need to make the best decision.
Our whistleblower attorneys can also help advise clients on the potential for whistleblower immunity. Whistleblower immunity means that the whistleblower will not be prosecuted for acts taken to further the fraud on the government. Typically, a whistleblower attorney would request whistleblower blower immunity from the federal government. Our whistleblower attorneys can help you understand the pros and cons of requesting whistleblower immunity to assist you in making an informed decision.
