In an effort to discourage and identify corruption in the letting of contracts, the federal government provides compensation for whistleblowers, including federal employees and private citizens.
Do you have evidence of corruption involving a federal construction contract? Was there bid rigging in a public works project? Did the contractor fail to meet the specifications in the contract?
These are types of construction contract fraud that are prohibited by federal law. By filing and prevailing in a lawsuit, you can obtain a percentage of the money recovered as the result of your action. However, such cases can be complex, and there are strict time limitations for filing a suit. You should speak with an attorney with experience in whistleblower cases as soon as possible.
Alan Lescht and Associates, P.C., is a law firm that represents people in cases involving public works contract fraud, defense contractor fraud, health care fraud and other whistleblower cases. We have the experience, legal knowledge and resources to successfully pursue whistleblower cases, and our attorneys will seek the best possible result for you.
The Federal Civil False Claims Act (FCFCA) provides qui tam protection to private sector employees and employees of other organizations who report fraud involving government contracts. The act prohibits employment retaliation against the whistleblower. At some point, the federal government itself can join the whistleblower action, or the lawsuit can proceed separately.
If the suit is successful, the contractor found liable under the act may be subject to treble damages. The whistleblower may be entitled to a percentage of those damages, plus attorney fees and court costs. Alan Lescht and Associates, P.C., will be your strong advocate, working hard to obtain results for you.
