Filing a Qui Tam Action Against Your employer – Part II

There is a high cost associated with hiring a CFA or certified fraud investigator to assist you in preparing for and filing your FCA lawsuit. The cost of the investigator, their time spent on your case, and any expense that results from his or her report to you should always be included in the cost of your lawsuit. In most instances, an FCA lawsuit is not won by the plaintiff unless the case is brought up on summary judgment, which means that there is no trial and a judgment is entered against the defendant.

If your lawsuit is then brought to the appeals court, it may take additional time and expense for you to have the case heard by the appeals court.

The appeals court will then determine whether or not the complaint has been properly filed under the FCA. If the complaint has been properly filed, the appeal will likely be denied by the appeals court. If this happens, your case will proceed to trial. If your lawsuit does proceed to trial, the final appeal will be at a U.S. district court.

If your lawsuit is not brought to a U.S. district court, there are a few alternative remedies available. One option is to file a petition with the U.S. Commission on Accreditation of Debt Collection Agencies for an opinion as to whether your complaint has been properly filed under the FCA. The U.S. Commission on accreditation does not have the authority to rule on the merits of a complaint, but this is one opinion that they do have the authority to give you. You should consult with a professional attorney who is familiar with the Commission on Accreditation before filing your lawsuit.

Another alternative remedy is to file a qui tam lawsuit against the lender who is responsible for the fraud that caused your lawsuit.

Under the FHA, a lending institution is protected from liability for fraud if the risk of the fraud is justified by the benefits they receive from providing home loans. A qui tam lawsuit can be filed in either the federal or state courts. There are certain requirements that must be met in order for your lawsuit to proceed. A qualified attorney should be consulted to assist you in completing these steps.

There are a few things to consider when filing a qui tam action. First, the complaint must contain enough specific and direct evidence to support a finding that the defendant is responsible for the fraud. Second, you must also show that a likelihood of recovery exists through a procedure called “chalking out” the settlement. This refers to a process where the details of the case are communicated to a third party so that they can determine whether the defendant acted reasonably in keeping their obligations. Once these details have been communicated, the third party is supposed to develop an estimate of how much money would be lost through various losses. If the estimate is more than the loss, the plaintiff is entitled to be compensated for the difference.

Your employer may also be subject to a whistleblower lawsuit after it has been found that they have engaged in a practice of sexual harassment.

Under the Federal False Claims Act, you can pursue a suit against your employer to seek damages for sexual harassment, for punitive damages, or for an alternative remedy provision. In order to seek an award from the government, you must first inform the U.S. Department of Labor that you are a whistleblower. You must then follow all appropriate procedures for pursuing your complaint.
