Do You Need a Stimulus Whistleblower Lawyer?
Have you been the victim of unfair retaliation by your employer because you reported waste of stimulus funds?
- Do you need to protect your career because you reported your employer’s fraud or abuse of stimulus funding?
- Are your reputation and financial stability on the line because you did the right thing and spoke out?
On February 12, 2009 Congress passed the "McCaskill Amendment" to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, which includes robust protection for those who have reported waste of stimulus funds. The law ensures that employees of private contractors and state and local governments can disclose waste, fraud, gross mismanagement or a violation of law related to stimulus funds. The protections, contained in section 1553 of the Act, are quite similar to those provided to federal employees under the Whistleblower Protection Act. If you were fired illegally, the protections of the McCaskill Amendment may help you to get your job back.
