Is your employer cheating on a government contract? Are you aware of dishonest accounting or intentional underperformance of a contract? Under federal Qui Tam laws, you have a legal right and responsibility to report the wrongdoing.
Under the law, it is illegal for an employer to take any retaliatory actions against an employee who reports illegal activities under whistleblower laws. If you are considering reporting illegal activities by your employer, or are suffering retaliation because of reporting an activity, talk to an experienced Qui Tam attorney at VKV right away.
VKV attorneys have extensive experience working with cases involving cheating on government contracts and fraudulent public accounting under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. We understand how difficult it is for a single employee to stand up against the power of a large corporation. VKV lawyers give you the knowledge and power to stand up and fight courageously against harassment, retaliation and wrongful termination.
“It’s not just the federal government. New York has strong statutes prohibiting retaliation against whistleblowers, too. You have the law on your side. If you see a wrong where you work, it takes courage to speak out. We give you the power and knowledge to act with courage.” — Sara Wyn Kane
