Fraud at Your Company
Whistleblower Lawyers Help You Report Fraud
What do you do when you discover that your employer or a coworker is committing fraud? Potential whistleblowers struggle with this question every day. Those who report fraud may risk retaliation. Those who know about wrongdoing and fail to take action may, in some circumstances, be prosecuted.
Passionate Representation in Whistleblower Claims
To Report Fraud, Contact Hersh & Hersh: 800-441-5545
The whistleblower attorneys of Hersh & Hersh will advise you of your options, which may include:
Internal Report: You could report the information to your manager or another person inside the company. Yet, how do you know the information you provide will be acted upon appropriately? Instead of rooting out the problem, your management may demote, fire or otherwise retaliate against you for speaking out about internal corruption.
External Report: You could report the information to the responsible government agency or independent regulatory body. Depending on the type of fraud and the nature of your business, you could inform the FDA, EPA, IRS, FBI, SEC or other groups. If the agency decides to investigate, your identity will not be disclosed.
Keep Quiet: People who are aware of wrongdoing at their firms often don't say anything for fear of retaliation or termination. However, when you know about wrongdoing and fail to report it, you may be held legally responsible.
Talk to a Whistleblower Attorney: Our lawyers will carefully analyze the circumstances of your case and fully explain your options. If your employer retaliates against you, we may pursue legal action under the appropriate state or federal whistleblower protection law. If misuse of government funds is involved, our attorneys may file a qui tam lawsuit to help you receive a portion of the funds the government recovers based on the information you divulge. In other cases, we will seek to protect you against prosecution for allegedly participating in the fraudulent activity.
