Fraud & Covid-19 Webinar

Fraud, Healthcare, COVID-19, and the False Claims Act

Shauna Itri, Partner at Seeger Weiss LLP will be presenting for us today. A whistleblower or qui tam action can provide financial rewards to individuals who have information that a company/individual has committed fraud. The primary statutes under which this relief may be sought are the federal and state False Claims Acts (“FCAs”). In addition to the FCAs, there are other statutes which apply to tax fraud, securities fraud, and in California, fraud on private insurance companies. This practical Course will provide an overview of the False Claims Acts, the knowledge and skills to be able to recognize a potential whistleblower case, and understand the unique procedures utilized in filing whistleblower cases/tips. The second half of the Course will go into recent trends in cases brought (or could be brought) under the False Claims Act including cases involving mined data and potential fraud related to COVID-19.
