The Federal Government is defrauded of billions of dollars each year by unscrupulous contractors and businesses. As a result, it relies, in part, on concerned parties to expose this corruption and save taxpayer funds by suing on behalf of the government and sharing in the recovery.
Under the False Claims Act, the Fraud Enforcement and Recovery Act of 2009 (FERA), the Internal Revenue Code, and even the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, liabilities are imposed on persons or companies who defraud government programs. A whistleblower often receives part of the proceeds of any settlement or decision for uncovering these false claims.
