One way Ross M. Wolfe, Esq. helps provide whistleblower protection is by protecting your rights if there is whistleblower retaliation as a result of filing a qui tam lawsuit.
In many cases, whistleblowers are “insiders” of the company submitting fraudulent or false claims to the government. For this reason, whistleblower protection is provided by almost all whistleblower laws to employees who have “blown the whistle” to protect them from whistleblower retaliation. The federal False Claims Act provides whistleblower protection in the form of relief for whistleblower retaliation in the employment setting. The federal False Claims Act penalty for whistleblower retaliation such as adverse employment actions include reinstatement, double back pay plus interest, attorneys’ fees and special damages.
The federal False Claims Act statute of limitations for a retaliation action is three years.
No Fees Without Recovery
Ross M. Wolfe and the Weiser Law Firm litigate whistleblower lawsuits on a contingent fee basis, so whistleblowers do not pay attorneys’ fees or court costs unless there is a recovery.
