Whistleblowing is a scary task. You risk your job and potentially your career to do the right thing. But most people who want to do the right thing may not fully understand what they must do to protect themselves during this daunting process. Our attorney at The Law Offices of Joseph C. Bird, PLLC, can help. We brought one of the largest whistleblowing claims at the time under the federal False Claims Act (FCA) and we can help you, no matter the type of claim you need to bring.
Whistleblowing Issues Arise In Many Situations
Whistleblower actions can occur with a very wide range of activities. While many involve violations of federal law or involve fraud in contractual dealing, they can also occur when companies violate their own internal policies or ethics standards. No matter where you work, if something seems not quite right about a situation, you may have a potential whistleblowing scenario.
It can occur with matters involving:
- Environmental laws and policy
- Government contracting
- Health care insurance, Medicare or Medicaid fraud
- Law enforcement
- Banking and the financial industry
Whistleblower Protection Under The Law
Whistleblower law is a complex area, weaving together statutory and regulatory law, ethical concerns and internal policies and procedures of businesses. Our lawyer will listen and explain potential strategies and what you need to do to protect your livelihood and do what is right.
We can help you understand your options. We can advise what you need to do to document your claims and ensure that should retaliation occur, you have followed the correct procedures and not prejudiced your claims by inadvertent mistakes.
