Recruiting and Placing Whistleblowers: Bounty and Options for Reporting Fraud, Waste and Abuse

Sorry, this webinar has ended.

When an employee becomes aware that an employer or supplier may have committed fraud, it can be scary. Potential whistleblowers often believe their options are limited and are fearful of both reporting, and not reporting, the fraud.

Many individuals who find themselves in this situation are unware that they can pursue a whistleblower case. With the right lawyer,  a case is of no out of pocket cost to the whistleblower and isn’t  a significant drain on time.  Additionally, a whistleblower (or qui tam) action can provide financial and reputational rewards and protections to individuals for providing information that a company, hospital or individual has defrauded the government.

In this webinar, we’ll take a look at the current Whistleblower Statutes, including the IRS Whistleblower and SEC Whistleblower Acts, and talk about what it means to file a case.  We’ll examine some examples of actual Whistleblower cases and the consequences for whistleblowers.

Join our free webinar on Thurday, October 15 for an overview of the whistleblower statutes and insight into the filing and consequeneces of whistleblower cases.

Our expert speaker, Shauna Itri, will share her expertise in how the whistleblower laws work and how they serve as fraud enforcement tools. You’ll also learn how to
