An Atlanta Whistleblower Help Attorney Protects Whistleblower Rights and Interests
Reporting Georgia dental kickbacks and/or Stark Law violations can result in on-the-job retaliation. An Atlanta kickback and Stark Law violations protection attorney at Bothwell Law Group protects whistleblowers against unlawful acts of revenge or punishment.
Anti-Kickback Statute 42 U.S.C. 1320a-7b(b) (AKS) clearly prohibits dentists, orthodontists, clinic managers, etc. from asking for or receiving money or gifts of value in exchange for goods and services they aren’t entitled to. It is also a violation to offer such kickbacks, regardless of knowledge (or a lack of) or intention. A violation of the Anti-Kickback Statute is an automatic violation of the False Claims Act.
It is very important to file correctly. Even a small error can disqualify an otherwise entitled whistleblower, and when awards reach into the six figures and more range, the mistake may prove to be very costly. An experienced Atlanta whistleblower help attorney knows how to ensure that whistleblowers’ rights and interests are protected.
