Whistleblower & Fraud

Whistleblower Claims

Our Dallas based attorneys investigate and pursue whistleblower and retaliatory discharge claims on behalf of individuals who reported their employer’s illegal conduct under federal and state laws.

The Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) is designed to regulate employment conditions relating to occupational safety and health and to achieve safer and more healthful workplaces throughout the nation. The Act provides for a wide range of substantive and procedural rights for employees and representatives of employees. The Act also recognizes that effective implementation and achievement of its goals depend in large measure upon the active and orderly participation of employees, individually and through their representatives, at every level of safety and health activity.

Federal False Claims Act – Qui tam suits

The Gomez Firm routinely evaluates and advises clients who have first hand knowledge of fraudulent claims and practices involving federal funds. These so called “whistleblowers” may be eligible to file a “Qui Tam” claim under the False Claims Act on behalf of the United States Government to recover federal dollars lost to these fraudulent practices. A successful whistleblower may be entitled to between fifteen (15) and thirty (30) percent of the money recovered on behalf of the government.

The False Claims Act, 31 U.S.C. § 3729 et seq., provides for liability for triple damages and a penalty from $5,500 to $11,000 per claim for anyone who knowingly submits or causes the submission of a false or fraudulent claim to the United States.
