An employer’s fraudulent or illegal actions can put you, the employee, at risk of jeopardizing your hard-earned career and facing legal consequences. Laws have been created to shield you from wrongful discharge and other retaliation for doing the right thing. These laws not only provide state and federal law protection for employees, but possible financial incentive.

Our team, led by Zahra Karinshak, is comprised of highly experienced litigators; all of them clerked in federal court and even include a former federal prosecutor.

The False Claims Act allows persons to bring lawsuits (known as “qui tam” or “whistleblower” suits) against companies and individuals defrauding the federal government, including the IRS and other government agencies. Several states, including Georgia, have similar laws to allow lawsuits related to the defrauding of state and local governments. Persons filing such suits stand to receive a portion of any recovered damages. Claims can involve:
- Healthcare spending (Medicare fraud, Medicaid fraud)
- Military spending (defense contractor fraud)
- Other government spending programs (bid-rigging on government contracts, environmental fraud)
