Qui Tam Suit Brings Over $2 Million to Whistleblower

Qui tam is a term and concept not even known by many lawyers, much less members of the general public. Qui tam is a Latin term and a type of lawsuit that allows a private citizen to bring a claim on behalf of and in the name of the United States government against a contractor or other party that is engaged in a government contract and defrauding the taxpayers.

In the realm of workplace ambiguities, the intern often occupies a special niche. What is he or she doing? Does it approximate the work that a "real" employee does?
