- Qui Tam – “Qui Tam” is a civil lawsuit alleging fraud against the Federal Government or federal contractors. “Whistleblower” cases under the Federal False Claims Act have unique protections and may involve the sharing of a recovery plus additional punitive damages.
Any employee reporting illegal activity in the workplace is protected by the Conscientious Employee Protection Act (CEPA) and other federal laws designed to encourage the identification of illegal activity without fear of reprisals. The mistake made by most individuals who witness this activity is that they wait too long to make a report and they fail to make their concerns known promptly, resulting in an ambiguous claim.
If you have observed illegal activity, you need to understand the ramifications the exposure will have on your finances, your personal life and your professional career. At Gonzalez Law, we urge you to speak to an attorney today, before you suffer retaliatory actions or termination by your employer. A lawyer from our firm can offer an evaluation and give recommendations designed to protect your job and your family. When the situation has become untenable, we can also assist in the negotiation of exit packages that protect benefits, preserve retirement plans, and deter punitive actions by your employer.
If you have been fired or your working relationships have soured because of illegal activity in the workplace, please contact the Los Angeles offices of Gonzalez Law to speak to an attorney experienced in “whistleblower” representation.
