Protection After You Expose Wrongdoing at Work
We all have a responsibility to do what's right, yet employers often react illegally when employees report them for wrongdoing. Too often, employers retaliate against whistleblowers through poor job reviews, termination, demotion and pay cuts.
Fortunately, for whistleblowers, laws exist to provide protection against retaliating employers. If you have reported your employer for safely violations, environmental infractions, discrimination or any other illegal act, we can help.
Has your employer retaliated against you after a whistleblowing incedent? Do you have questions regarding your rights as whistleblower, either before or after a whistleblowing incident? Call 704-315-2497 or 1-866-577-3865.
At the law firm of Wells Daisley Rabon, P.A., in Charlotte, we are experienced in litigation and employment law, and can provide knowledgeable and aggressive legal help. Do not accept illegal retaliation, and do not accept employers' explanations of retaliatory behavior without legal advice and help.
Qui Tam Cases—When Your Employer Defrauds the Federal Government
Years of election-year promises to shrink big government has lead to a massive increase in the number of government contracts. The last several administrations have shrunk the government workforce by contracting out of a broad range of duties and responsibilities formerly performed by government employees. Private companies now do everything from collecting back taxes for the IRS to providing military-style security services overseas. In addition to this significant outsourcing, there is simply a much greater overall volume of government contracting and — consequently — much greater opportunity for fraud to be perpetrated on the federal government.
Because of the widespread use of government contracting, incidents of fraud and incidents of the report of fraud have increased in North Carolina and around the country.
Employee reporting of employer fraud against the federal government is known as "qui tam." Qui tam cases often involve government contracts, Medicaid and Medicare billing, and overcharging while selling goods and services. Employees who report cases of fraud are eligible to receive a portion of funds recovered by the government.
