Whistleblower Protection

New Jersey Whistleblower Protection Attorneys

If you know or reasonably believe that your employer is engaged in an unlawful activity, the Federal False Claims Act and New Jersey's Conscientious Employee Protection Act (CEPA) can protect you from retaliation if you come forward with this information. However, reporting must be handled properly and you must meet certain requirements to be eligible for the protection. For this reason, it is critical to consult with an attorney about what you know or suspect before taking any other actions.

More Than Half a Century of Dedication to Employee Rights

At Krumholz Dillon, we can put more than 50 years of experience, knowledge, and skill towards protecting you against whistleblower retaliation from your employer and towards asserting your rights as a U.S. citizen under the qui tam provision of the False Claims Act. As a firm, we handle State and Federal litigation and appeals involving:

  • Workplace safety violations / OSHA violations
  • EPA violations
  • Tax fraud / accounting fraud
  • Medicare fraud
  • Consumer fraud
  • Defense contractor fraud
  • Government construction fraud
  • Violations of civil or criminal laws
  • Violations of laws concerning overtime pay or prevailing wages
  • Violations of laws or rules regarding health or safety issues

As attorneys, we understand the risks that you take in coming forward and will take every precaution to make sure that you remain anonymous for as long as the law allows. However, there is a one-year statute of limitations for CEPA cases in New Jersey.

In addition to providing you protection from demotion, retaliatory firing, or the loss of other benefits, the False Claims Act also provides a financial incentive for conscientious citizens who expose substantial forms of fraud involving government funds. Known as qui tam cases, if your information leads to a successful prosecution, you may be eligible to receive up to 25 percent of the government's recovery.
