What are Qui Tam Lawsuits?

As a type of whistleblower lawsuit, qui tam lawsuits are filed under the False Claims Act. The term “qui tam” comes from the Latin phrase that roughly translates to “he who sues in this matter for the king as well as for himself.” If you are a private citizen with non-public information regarding fraudulent acts against the government made by either an individual or a business—exposing these crimes could entitle you to monetary reward. Please note that claims of unethical business practices must be substantiated in order to prove that an employer reacted with reckless disregard.

What Do You Need to Prove Qui Tam?

All qui tam cases are different, but to successfully prove qui tam, the main thing to keep in mind is that the more evidence you have, the better chance you will have in being able to substantiate the allegations. If you are working on "the inside" and have access to information or documents that show that fraud was committed and was not simply a mistake, this evidence can be used to prove qui tam.

If applicable to your case, another thing you may need to prove is that the defendant's conduct would cause very serious non-monetary harm. For example, if the defendant's actions jeopardized the health or safety of many individuals, the Department of Justice will be interested in this case and provide resources in investigating it as well.

What Protection Do I Have as a Whistleblower in Georgia?

The U.S. Government protects whistleblowers, and it has done so ever since the Founding Fathers drafted the federal Constitution. Laws have only become more nuanced and advanced since then, and the U.S. Congress continues to create new laws to encourage whistleblowing by providing monetary rewards to those who come forward to expose their organization or employer’s wrongdoing. Those who win qui tam lawsuits frequently are eligible for 15-30% of the fraud recovered.
