Whistleblower and Qui Tam Cases
Reporting an employer or contractor's illegal or unethical activity takes courage. The term "whistleblower" is used to describe a person who files a claim against a party accused of fraudulent actions. A "qui tam" case can be a case involving fraud against the government under the U.S. False Claims Act or Kentucky false claims laws.
The attorneys of Garmer & Prather are a premier resource for whistleblowers in complex cases involving employer misconduct. Led by Bill Garmer, a litigator with more than 40 years of legal experience, we help our clients do the right thing and protect their rights.
The laws governing corporate conduct and whistleblower claims are extremely complex, so it is essential to retain the counsel of a seasoned lawyer. Our attorneys represent employees in a variety of cases, including:
- Cases involving fraud against a Kentucky or U.S. government agency
- Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) claims under the Dodd-Frank Act
- Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) claims
- Internal Revenue Service (IRS) whistleblower claims
Many whistleblowers do not get the respect they deserve for making the right choice. Many employers or co-workers threaten whistleblowers with retaliation, terminate them from employment or treat them unfairly at work.
At Garmer & Prather, we understand the difficult position you are in when you are considering reporting your employer. We have helped many whistleblowers protect their legal rights, their employment status and their future with aggressive representation. We can help you understand the benefits and risks of taking legal action and offer practical advice so you can make the right decision on your own terms.Contact Us to Arrange a Consultation
