Reporting Construction Contractor Fraud
Construction contractor fraud occurs when contractors cheat the public paying for the construction of courthouses, post offices, rail lines, prisons, airports, highways, bridges — any public construction work.
The False Claims Act is a powerful tool the government uses to fight back against fraud, using a combination of multiple rewards and penalties. It has been very successful in stemming the tide of fraudulent claims. Fischer Legal Group is a leader in working with whistleblowers to do the right thing and receive a reward for doing so.
