False Claims Act and Whistleblower Protection Act discussed by Beasley Allen attorney Archie Grubb

| Employment Law, States and Municipalities

Whistleblowers face personal risks when they take steps to expose fraud and other wrongdoing. They may face retaliation such as being demoted, denied promotions or even being fired from their jobs. However, as Beasley Allen attorney Archie Grubb explains on this edition of The Beasley Allen Report, the False Claims Act (FCA) provides important whistleblower protections. The False Claims Act allows U.S. citizens to sue on behalf of the U.S. Government when they witness fraud, abuse, waste, mismanagement and other wrongdoing. A common area for this abuse is in government contracts. It also may apply to companies that indirectly receive government reimbursement, for example in false billing for medical services that would then be reimbursed by Medicare or Medicaid. Grubb tells Beasley Allen Report host and fellow Beasley Allen attorney Gibson Vance that whistleblower claims are a growing area of his law practice, as more people learn about the False Claims Act.

He notes that individuals play a key role in exposing fraud and other wrongdoing. A person must have first-hand knowledge of government fraud or abuse in order to act as a whistleblower.
