Qui Tam cases are a specific type of whistleblower case alleging that an employer has violated the False Claims Act1 by:
- Submitting a fraudulent claim to a government agency – Medicare fraud is a common example.
- Committing any fraud with respect to government funds – Pertaining to both money owed to the government and funds the government has paid out, examples include tax fraud and government contract fraud.
When Qui Tam cases result in the government recovering funds, whistleblowers can be entitled to up to 30 percent of the monies recovered.
