虚偽請求取締法

As states continue to enact their own false claims statutes – approximately 30 states now have statutes modeled after the federal FCA – state attorneys general are also aggressively pursuing potential FCA violations and coordinating their efforts to extract treble damages and civil penalties from defendants. The FCA also deputizes whistleblowers to bring fraud claims (called qui tam actions) on behalf of the United States. Why It Matters The most recent statistics published by DOJ confirm that the number of FCA suits and the size of monetary recoveries under the FCA continue to be ...

Pay equity is at the forefront of regulatory, political, shareholder, employee, and public concern. 2016 brought an unprecedented wave of new and proposed pay equity legislation and other initiatives at the federal and state level, seeking to address the pay gap. This is also a trend internationally. These initiatives will make it easier for employees and government agencies to bring pay claims against employers and may expose employers to public scrutiny as well as increased litigation risks and costs. While it remains to be seen how the Trump administration will pursue these issues at the ...
