The False Claims Act’s Qui Tam provision is one of the strongest whistleblower protection laws in the United States. However, it has many complicated components and requirements, which can harm any person that pursues such a claim without counsel.
A “qui tam” lawsuit is a suit filed by a private citizen on behalf of a government entity, against someone who sought to obtain government money by fraud.3
Under the California False Claims Act, Government Code 12652 GC, employees – like any other private citizens – may file qui tam suits against their employers. This is especially common with employers that perform work under government contracts.
Los Angeles employees who experience workplace retaliation after opposing violations of the California False Claims Act may successfully bring a whistleblower lawsuit against their employers for California wrongful termination.
The whistleblower retaliation sections of the CFCA are set forth in Government Code 12653 GC.
