Federal and state whistleblower laws protect employees from retaliatory firing if they report the employer’s allegedly illegal activities to the appropriate state or federal agency.

In one notable case, Silver Golub & Teitell LLP represented a corporate whistleblower in his claim under the Federal False Claims Act against United Technologies that resulted in the largest award at the time recovered by the U.S. government under the Act, a settlement of $150 million.  In another case, as lead counsel in what is believed to be the largest class action in Connecticut history, we successfully represented 40,000 current and former employees in their action against the Xerox Corporation for violations of ERISA pension laws.

Connecticut representation for qui tam whistleblower actions

Silver Golub & Teitell LLP represents whistleblowers who report their employers in cases of the following:

  • Accounting fraud

  • Price fixing
  • Unfair trade practices
  • False billing
  • Consumer fraud
  • Fraudulent use of government funds
  • Other forms of intentional misconduct

Standing in the government’s shoes

The whistleblower—or qui tam—laws permit individuals to bring suit on behalf of the government and are designed to encourage the reporting of fraud and abuse. The laws provide protections for employees and specifically prohibit retaliation for the reporting of the following:

  • Corporate fraud
  • Government waste or abuse
  • Making certain complaints to government agencies
  • Reporting illegal harassment or discrimination
  • Cooperating with law enforcement investigations

Our experienced qui tam lawyers have successfully represented employees and former employees who suffered retaliation such as the following:

  • Demotions
  • Salary cuts
  • Harassment
  • Transfers
  • Wrongful termination

We provide advice and guidance to individuals who have knowledge of business fraud and want to know how to proceed. We offer a free consultation and case evaluation to potential whistleblowers and will thoroughly investigate both the underlying allegations and any claims of whistleblower retaliation to ensure that the client’s rights are protected.
