The Knowledge Congress Has Scheduled a Live Webcast on False Claims Act: Understanding the Law and Defending Whistleblower Claims


New York, NY, June 02, 2010 --(PR.com)-- The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, announced today that it has scheduled a live webcast entitled: “False Claims Act: Understanding the Law and Defending Whistleblower Claims.” This two-hour event is scheduled on August 18, 2010 at 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM ET.

The False Claims Act “FCA”, enacted during the civil war, gave ordinary citizens the ability to sue in the name of The United States when they uncovered fraud. Mainly enacted as a rule to uncover fraud among defense contractors selling subpar equipment to the government, it has expanded to other areas including healthcare. Several landmarks cases such involving defense contractors in Afghanistan and a recent Supreme Court Ruling have brought into question the scope of the FCA. Companies who contract with the US government must be in the know with respect to the FCA issues in order to protect themselves against costly lawsuits.

This live webcast, brought to you by the Knowledge Group, will cover the most critical elements of the FCA & related issues including:

- Overview and background.
- Criteria for defining which employees are protected by the FCA.
- What employees have to prove and how should you respond.
- Post case issues – what to do after the ruling?
- Recent case studies – what went right and what went wrong.
- Up-to-the minute regulatory updates.

This webcast is a must attend event for any US Government contractors (Past, Present, Future). Millions are lost every year to whistleblower claims and lawsuits. A thorough understanding of the FCA will help you protect your company. Their team of experts will break down the most important issues so that you will be in the know with respect to the most critical concerns. Advanced registration is recommended as enrollment is limited for this course. Significant discounts apply for early registration.
