Louisiana Whistleblowers Can Earn Large Cash Rewards
Louisiana executives, accountants, compliance officers, engineers, sales representatives, nurses and other employees have unique exposure to the inner workings of their companies, competitor companies and third-party contractors.
Federal and Louisiana False Claims Acts and the SEC whistleblower program offer cash awards for information on the abuse of taxpayer dollars.
Our clients earn cash awards for reporting:
- Louisiana defense contractor fraud
- LA Medicare fraud
- Louisiana Medicaid Fraud
- Louisiana company securities violations
- Other corporate misconduct
Cash whistleblower awards equal between 15% and 30% of the total government recovery amount when a whistleblower’s information brings a successful verdict or settlement. The key to maximizing your cash award amount is hiring a whistleblower law firm with decades of experience advocating for whistleblowers – and winning awards – in State and Federal courts across the United States.
