Whistleblower and qui tam (defrauding the government) cases are about people who have gone out of their way to do “the right thing,” only to be treated wrongly by their employer because of it. This not only sends a bad message, it is illegal.
By law, a whistleblower who reports an employer for instances of government fraud (qui tam), health and safety violations or other wrongs cannot be fired by them. If you have been the victim of wrongful termination because you did the right thing, the next right thing is to talk with a lawyer / attorney.
At Leeds Brown Law, P.C., we do the right thing for the people we represent and work hard to obtain justice for them. For more than two decades, our practice has been based on Long Island, serving the New York City area, but we can, and do, handle whistleblower and qui tam claims nationwide.
Whether their cases involve reporting defense contractor fraud, Medicare or Medicaid fraud, a public health concern or workplace safety violations — most whistleblowers are rewarded by their employers by being fired. Our attorneys handle their wrongful termination claims and fight to obtain fair compensation for the injustice that has been done to them. Depending on our clients’ goals, we may also fight to get them reinstated to their former position.
We strive to provide the highest quality of representation and service while building relationships with clients that are founded on trust and that help them to get through this difficult time with a minimum of stress and delay.
