Do I have to report the fraud that I know about to the Government or my employer before filing a Qui tam action?

In general, the False Claims Act does not require you to report the fraud before filing a Qui tam action. However, there are circumstances in which you must, or would be wise to, inform the Government before filing. You may wish to speak with an attorney about this issue. Contact the office of Younce, Vtipil, Baznik & Banks, P.A., for information on your legal rights.
