If you do business with the federal government (think Medicare reimbursements, government contracts, student loans, etc.) and you have employees, you need to keep up with the recent False Claims Act (FCA) cases and the bounties whistleblowers are getting. There is no end in sight for the trend of increased whistleblower activity under the FCA. In 2016 alone, whistleblowers (many of whom are employees or former employees) received over $519 million as their shares of the FCA settlements and judgments and filed 702 new actions. As it does each year, Bradley has assembled an overview of the year’s major False Claims Act developments and opinions to keep you abreast of the status of law. You may find our 2016 Year in Review here.
