This book is the second volume in the National Whistleblower Center's "Whistleblower Laws" series. Qui Tam and False Claim Acts: Federal, State and Municipal Qui Tam Laws, outlines all current U.S. laws that allow private citizens who witness fraud against a government entity to file suit "blowing the whistle" on greedy contractors who bilk government agencies, and to be awarded a portion of the monies recovered. The book contains the federal False Claims Act, the text of false claims act legislation from 22 states, various city governments, as well as the federal qui tam provisions covering tax fraud.
This publication is an invaluable resource for whistleblowers and plaintiff's attorneys who are interested in qui tam laws. Qui tam laws have become a popular tool for state and municipalities in the fight against government waste. In 2006 alone, the Federal Government recovered 1.41 billion dollars from fraudulent contractors under the FCA. As new qui tam laws are passed, the online version of this book will reflect them, and users can stay up to date by linking to or adding this page to your favorites: Qui Tam and False Claim Acts: Federal, State and Municipal.
