Federal and state False Claims Acts are a type of "whistleblower" protection designed to protect the rights of those who come forward to report incidents of theft or abuse. Qui tam actions often come to light when an employee is fired and seeks legal counsel for other issues such as employment discrimination claims. During the interview or investigation process, the attorney may learn that the employer has defrauded the government, giving rise to False Claims Act litigation.
