Virginia Whistleblower Law
According to Virginia whistleblower law, if you are an employee and witness fraudulent activity by your employer or company you may become a whistleblower and file a claim. It is unlawful for your employer to retaliate against these claims if there is evidence of wrongdoing.
Fraudulent activity can take place in a wide range of industries, from financial institutions and contractors to medical providers or suppliers. Regardless of the industry that you are in, taking action holds those individuals or party responsible for their actions. Corruption and fraud should not be tolerated and as a whistleblower, the government is often interested in rewarding you for your efforts. You may receive attorney fees, court costs, and a percentage of the amount which was recovered.
A few examples of whistleblower cases we can represent include:
- Corporate fraud
- Healthcare fraud
- Billing fraud
- Construction fraud
- Public works fraud
- Military fraud
- Defense contractor fraud
- Whistleblower retaliation
