Understanding the False Claims Act
The False Claims Act was established to crack down on companies who received federal money but then proceeded to misuse that money (or defrauded the government to receive the money in the first place). Not only does the law provide legal protections for the whistleblower in these cases, it also provides the whistleblower a financial reward for exposing the fraud in some cases. These whistleblower actions are considered "qui tam" actions.
Common qui tam actions include:
- False pharmaceutical marketing
- Promoting off-label drugs
- Tampering with food labeling (or false labeling)
- Claiming false Medicare reimbursement (Medicare fraud)
Texas also has similar laws for companies that are found to be defrauding the state government. If you have critical information about your employer you are planning to come forward with, it's crucial that you do so with counsel who is familiar with the local and federal laws that provide protection and, if applicable, can compensate you for your bravery and integrity with this matter. At Lopez Law Group, we're ready to provide that counsel, protect your reputation, and ensure that the gravity of your actions is fully recognized by the government.
