The False Claims Act (FCA), 31 U.S.C. §§ 3729-3733, generally prohibits a company from submitting false claims to the government to get paid on a government contract. Typical examples of conduct which runs afoul of the FCA include: submitting invoices for services not rendered or products not provided; “up-coding” by billing for a more expensive and extensive service than the one actually rendered; “defective pricing” by ling about how much something might cost; and accepting “kickbacks.” “Reverse false claims,” which occur when the violator takes an affirmative step to avoid an obligation to pay the government, are also fairly common. Section H of the False Claims Act (FCA), 31 U.S.C. § 3730(h)(1), protects employees and independent contractors who are discharged, demoted, suspended, threatened, harassed, or otherwise discriminated against in the terms and conditions of their employment because of their attempt to stop FCA violations. Ms. Smith has successfully represented several clients who were wrongfully terminated for reporting FCA violations and attempting to snuff out the fraud on the government. If you believe you were terminated for reporting conduct by your employer that might constitute fraud on the government, or if you have information about FCA violations by your employer and are unsure of what to do with the information CONTACT US to schedule a consultation with Ms. Smith to discuss your legal rights and potential representation.
