Working with Whistleblowers: Basics of Qui Tam Litigation

Qui tam lawsuits are a type of whistleblower lawsuit that is brought under the federal False Claims Act, a law that rewards whistleblowers in successful cases where the government recovers funds lost to fraud. Some of the types of fraud alleged in qui tam claims include Medicare and Medicaid fraud, issues that commonly arise in the context of abuse and neglect monitoring and investigations. Presenters are experienced qui tam litigators who will describe the basics of qui tam claims and litigation and how to work with potential whistleblowers. The session is designed for attorneys and advocates who may have little or no experience of qui tam litigation.
