If you work for a company in the Columbia area and believe they have committed fraud against the government, you are a key piece to fighting for justice. False claims attorney Bill Nettles understands that this can be a frightening experience filled with doubt. Fortunately, he can walk you through the litigation process for your whistleblower claim.
A whistleblower is an an individual that has information regarding another individual or company that has committed fraud against the government. The U.S. government relies heavily on whistleblowers to help catch fraudulent activity, as they do not have the proper funds or resources to do this on their own.
Stepping forward and standing up against the company you work for is not an easy task, but it is a vital action to protect the American public. By standing up and reporting false claims, you can save millions of taxpayer dollars.
There are federal laws set into place to protect your rights as a whistleblower, such as:
- You remain anonymous
- Your company cannot take adverse action
- You may be eligible to receive compensation for your efforts in exposing this fraud against the government
Attorney Bill Nettles represents whistleblowers in connection with corporate false claims, including:
After you file a claim, the government will review the case and investigate further. If they find that the company did in fact provide false information, they will seek compensation, which may add up to three times the amount of losses, plus penalty fees. For stepping forward and helping catch fraudulent activity, the government rewards whistleblowers with a portion of the compensation, between 15 and 30 percent.
