By reporting fraud involving government Covid-19 relief funds, whistleblowers play an essential role in ensuring that coronavirus pandemic relief allocated under the CARES Act, the Paycheck Protection Program and Health Care Enhancement Act, the American Rescue Plan Act and other government programs are being spent and directed appropriately.
Qui tam lawsuits, as allowed by the False Claims Act, are an important and effective way for whistleblowers to report and stop fraud involving government funds as well as fraud that takes advantage of states, government agencies and other entities during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Those who blow the whistle on securities law violations related to the coronavirus pandemic can do so confidentially through the Securities and Exchange Commission whistleblower program, which also offers whistleblowers protection from job retaliation and rewards.
