Safely Report Crime At Work With Legal Help
If you discover your employer has engaged in illegal activity, it can be difficult to know what to do. If you report the crime, you could risk backlash from your employer. However, doing nothing doesn’t feel right either. No one wants to find him or herself in this position, but if you do, it is best to seek legal advice immediately.

The Federal False Claims Act And Qui Tam
In Pennsylvania, the majority of whistleblowing cases involve the “qui tam” provision of the Federal False Claims Act. This provision allows citizens to file legal actions on behalf of the government to help it recover money lost to fraud.
This means if your employer is engaged in illegal activity that defrauds the federal government, you may “blow the whistle” on your employer. In return, if the case is successful, you would be entitled to a portion of the recovered damages.
