Our firm represented a managerial employee of a trucking company who realized that his employer was committing fraud against the Department of Defense. The company had a contract with DOD to move service members. Managers within the company, who were incentivized to maximize revenues, would actually have service members unwittingly drive their personal vehicles onto weighing stations in order to increase the company’s billings to the government. Our client’s claims resulted in approximately $500,000 being returned to the government, and our client receiving a whistleblower award of approximately $150,000.
