Federal Whistleblower Protection Act Overview
The federal whistleblower protection act protects government employees, government contractors, subcontractors and grantees against any form of retaliation, such as a demotion, firing or discrimination, should they file an oral or written complaint over what they believe is government contractor fraud. The government has a wide range of laws containing provisions to protect workers in various government departments, from transportation to defense, to healthcare to occupational and nuclear safety.
Under the law, whistleblowers may file complaints if they believe there is evidence of:
- Gross mismanagement of a federal contract or grant
- Gross waste of federal funds
- Abuse of authority associated with a federal contract or grant
- Substantial and specific danger to public health or safety
- A violation of law, rule or regulation related to a federal contract (including the competition for or negotiation of a contract) or grant
The Federal Government Contractor Fraud fraud being committed could range from overcharging the government for goods and services or failing to meeting government specifications for equipment or other products.
False Claims Act And Federal Government Contractor Fraud Whistleblower Claim
The False Claims Act ((FCA) False Claims Act) allows Federal Government Contractor Fraud Whistleblower to file civil lawsuits (called “qui tam”) if they know about the fraud individuals or companies committed, or are committing, against the government. The (FCA) False Claims Act provides rewards to whistleblowers whose information helps the government recover funds or property. Some of the past rewards have resulted in multi-million dollar decisions. After a whistleblower or qui tam lawsuit is filed, the Whistleblower fraud lawsuit is “under seal” (kept secret) until the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) investigates the claims to determine whether the government will join the lawsuit. While the case is sealed for 60 days, the government can request more time to investigate. In fact, some investigations can take years. If the government joins the lawsuit and the investigation finds that the defendants committed fraud against the government, the (FCA) False Claims Act calls for a civil penalty for each false claim plus three times the amount of damages the government has sustained due to the fraud. Under the (FCA) False Claims Act, the whistleblower receives between 15 percent to 25 percent of what the government recovers.
