Case EvaluationSpeak to a Whistleblower
Types of Fraud
Whistleblowers should be on the lookout for companies that violate the False Claims Act through government contracts. When companies sell goods or services to the federal government they must agree to something called a Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) contract with the General Services Administration. Under an MAS contract, the company must disclose any discounts or price reductions they offer to commercial customers as well as any prices that are the basis of contract negotiations then later reduced.
Companies may be liable under the False Claims Act fraudulently claim they are complying with the terms of their MAS, or by violating one of the defective pricing or price reduction clauses above.
Each year, the government loses billions of dollars due to fraud and misconduct of companies and organizations. If you or someone you know has reason to believe that employer or government misconduct is present you may have legal options for compensation. In recent years, whistleblower litigation has helped save billions of government US dollars.
Those who witness these illegal actions have legal options and may seek compensation through litigation. Filing a claim against the entity responsible may result in compensation for the whistleblower that can be up to 25 percent of the government recovery. Billions have been rewarded to whistleblowers!
