Practice Area

Employees, both senior and junior, are often the first to observe corporate wrongdoing. But, many employees fear reporting wrongdoing to upper management will result in reprisals against them. Regrettably, many corporations have historically victimized those trying to do the right thing. And such reprisals chilled and deterred those with knowledge of the wrongdoing from taking action.

However, in modern times whistleblowing on corporate wrongdoing is not only allowed, the whistleblower has protections under the law! Importantly, the first person to report the wrongdoing is often rewarded under the law. Multiple Federal and State laws protect and reward the first Whistleblower for stepping forward and reporting corporate misconduct against the government.

If you are an employee in the greater Philadelphia area, or anywhere else, and you have evidence of corporate wrongdoing (fraud) in any government program, call on the Jacobs Law Group’s Philadelphia Whistleblower, Qui Tam, and false claims lawyers to assist you.

While the legal process can be difficult, the Jacobs Law Group’s experienced litigators will assist you in exposing the wrongdoers to hold them accountable.
