Whistleblower Legislation Primer: False Claims Act and Qui Tam
Litigation under the False Claims Act and State False Claims Acts is on the rise. The U.S. has recovered over $28 billion under FCA in last 25 years. The Obama administration has continued to aggressively enforce the Federal False Claims Act, and the FCA’s 2009 and 2010 amendments have become a growing concern for companies doing business with the federal government.
In a 60-minute webinar, I discuss the process of a whistleblower qui tam claim in depth, from the perspective of the relator, attorneys, investigators, and others.
During this webinar, I covered:
- Overview of the False Claims Act and qui tam
- Liability under the FCA
- Damages and Penalties
- Rise of State and Local FCAs
- How to Build a Qui Tam Case
- Understanding Retaliation Claims
