Is Your Employer Involved in Government Contract or Defense Contract Fraud?
Our Attorneys Help Employees and Ex-Employees of Government Goods and Service Providers Report Fraud and Claim Cash Rewards
Employees and former employees of government contractors and subcontractors play a fundamental role in protecting American taxpayer’s dollars from fraud. Under the Federal False Claims Act, individuals who report government or defense contractor fraud can be awarded between 15 and 30 percent of any amount recovered as a result of their information.
Billions of dollars have been reclaimed in cases of fraud involving government contracts. In one case, a whistleblower was awarded $18.4 million of an $88 million recovery for reporting a government contractor who allegedly supplied defective products to the U.S. Army and Navy. In 2012, the Department of Justice reclaimed $73 million through defense contractor lawsuits involving products and services provided for the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.

Are Your Employer’s or Ex-Employer’s Actions in Violation of the False Claims Act?
Millions of tax dollars are lost to contract violations by government contractors each year. Companies that supply federally funded schools, hospitals, research laboratories, the Army, Navy, Air Force or Marines with products or services like food, clothes, office supplies, mechanical parts, computers, construction or janitorial services are subject to the Federal False Claims Act. If government contractors or subcontractors are found to have committed fraud regarding a government contract, violators are fined triple the total monetary damages incurred by the government.
Has Your Employer Provided Products Or Services That Are Not in Compliance With A Government or Defense Contract?
Typical examples of providing non-compliant goods or services are:
- Failure to provide the required quality or quantity of products or services
- Failure to manufacture products under contract-specified conditions
- Failure to report product defects
- Use of insufficient, unsafe or non-spec building materials
Do You Suspect Overcharging or Fraudulent Behavior in Billing Procedures Involving a Government Contract?
Examples of overcharging or otherwise fraudulent billing are:
- Failure to offer “best price” on federal school products and services
- Billing for the cost of new parts but providing used or restored ones
- Billing for costs not covered by a government contract
- Billing for goods, services, labor or equipment not provided
- Offering kick-backs to gain bidding advantages
- Cross charging on fixed-price and cost-plus contracts
- Submitting false pricing data in contract negotiations
Have You Witnessed Neglect or Violation of Environmental, Labor or Safety Standards by a Government Contractor?
Some examples of this type of fraudulent violation include:
- Failure to offer prevailing wage
- Unlawful, improper disposal of hazardous materials
- False claims that products were made in America
- False claims that a business is minority-owned
