Do I need to inform my employer or the government of suspected fraud before filing a claim?

Generally, no. Always consult with your experienced qui tam attorney to discuss your personal course of action and determine if your evidence of fraud may need to be disclosed. However, any time you discuss fraud with your employer or the government, you run the risk that the federal government will file a False Claims Action before you, and you could lose your ability to recover.
