Who Can Be A Whistleblower Under the False Claims Act?
Georgia residents may wonder if they are eligible to be a whistleblower when they become aware of misuse of local, state, and/or federal funds. An experienced Roswell False Claims Act Lawyer at Bothwell Law Group can provide the answers to all questions. Usually, questions fall into three specific categories: who can be a whistleblower, does my evidence qualify, and what are my rights?
Who can be a whistleblower? Basically, anyone with firsthand original evidence of wrongdoing, including, but not limited to:
- Office Workers/Managers
- Defense Contractor
- Anyone with Knowledge of IRS Fraud
- Medical Care Personnel
- Clinic Workers
If you have original (evidence that has not been revealed or published elsewhere) knowledge of fraudulent use of local, State, or Federal funds in the state of Georgia, a Roswell qui tam lawyer at Bothwell Law Group has the experience and expertise you need to protect your rights, your job, and your interests.
The bottom line is, whistleblowers are people who have seen a scheme to defraud the Government and are willing to come forward and help recover the funds. Anybody with knowledge of fraudulent activities can be a whistleblower, though most whistleblowers are “insiders” to the company committing the fraud.

If information is the door to knowledge, then evidence is the key. A skilled Atlanta whistleblower attorney knows how to litigate your Georgia claim properly and seeks the highest financial recovery possible.

There are as many ways to defraud the Government as there are crooks. So the short answer is that any time someone (whether a person or a company) is making false or misleading statements to the Government in order to get or keep Government money, there is a possible whistleblower case.
If you are wondering whether your situation is covered by the False Claims Act, ask:
- Is there federal, state, or local GOVERNMENT money at issue?
- Is someone lying or misleading the Government to get money?
- Is someone lying or misleading the Government to keep money?
- Is someone lying or misleading the Government to get more money than he is entitled to receive?
