Amendments to the False Claims Act Webcast
Amendments to the False Claims Act: A Special Webcast by ERC
July 7, 2009
The Civil False Claims Act is the government's principal tool to combat fraud against the Treasury. On May 20, 2009, the Act was amended to expand liability and encourage qui tam lawsuits brought by whistleblowers. Listen to our panel of experts, who will provide a briefing on what this means for your organization's ethics and compliance programs.
- What new areas are covered by the expanded liability provisions of the Act?
- What are the Act's new anti-retaliation provisions?
- How do they dovetail with other whistleblower protections?
- What information can the government seek using the Act's Civil Investigative Demands, and how can information be shared with whistleblowers?
- What effect will the Amendments' revised "reverse false claim" and "overpayment" provisions have on your compliance program?
- Which aspects of the Amendments will apply retroactively?
- Jeb White, President, Taxpayers Against Fraud, who testified before the House concerning the Amendments.
- Peter Hutt, Partner, Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld, an expert on False Claims Act defense who also testified concerning the Amendments.
- Robert Rhoad, Partner, Crowell & Moring, an expert in False Claims Act defense and lead defense counsel in several recent high-profile False Claims Act cases, including Custer Battles.
