Employees who identify illegal activity in their workplace and come forward in reporting the illegality are known as whistleblowers. Whistleblower lawsuits include qui tam actions, where private citizens are incentivized to bring an action on behalf of the government against a company or entity that may be committing fraud against the government. A whistleblower lawyer can assist California employees or persons who want to do the right thing by whistle blowing on corporate misconduct.
A whistleblower lawyer should advise employees or individuals that they will receive proper protection only if they themselves bring forward information first and that the information satisfies specific requirements under whistleblower laws. A relator in a qui tam case is the first person to bring the case to the government. The relator’s name is kept confidential until the government either decides to pursue the case or the qui tam action has been resolved. Protection remedies specified by qui tam statutes guard against the retaliation of the employee or whistleblower. Whistleblower protection laws are particular and a whistleblower case should be properly managed by an experienced whistleblower lawyer. Federal whistleblower laws also allow for whistleblowers with credible information to be financially rewarded for their efforts.
