Disclosures by whistleblowers under the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act (FCA) have enabled the federal government to recover more than $40 billion. But with strong protections against retaliation, whistleblowers would be reluctant to come forward. This course, presented by Jason Zuckerman, Principal at Zuckerman Law, provides an overview of whistleblower protections for employees of government contractors and grantees, focusing on the whistleblower protection provisions of the FCA and National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). The course will also offer practical tips and insights for practitioners on how to evaluate potential whistleblower claims and overlapping remedies to maximize damages. In addition, the course will address the challenging issues that arise when a whistleblower simultaneously prosecutes both retaliation and rewards claims.
