Corporate Whistleblower Center Encourages Physicians, Health Care Professionals to Come Forward

The Corporate Whistleblower Center, an advocacy group that aims to protect whistleblowers against retaliation, is encouraging more professionals within the health care industry to come forward when they discover wrongdoing within their organizations. In a recent news release, the center urged physicians, health care managers and other professionals to call its offices whenever they find evidence that a pharmaceutical company is bribing doctors or administrators to sell more of its products.

One recent whistleblower received $3 million for reporting information that ultimately led to a large action taken against the health care organization in question. Potential fines for kickback schemes or Stark Law violations can often surpass $1 million in value. Whistleblowers may be eligible for a portion of the total sanctions a regulatory agency levies against an offending party.

Internal investigations can help businesses mitigate whistleblowers’ impact

The Corporate Whistleblower Center encourages potential whistleblowers to come to it first, rather than a government agency or the news media. The organization aims to give individuals the protections they need to move forward with confidence.

The reason why this is often necessary is because many businesses and organizations punish whistleblowers, rather than following up with an internal investigation to look into the issues these individuals bring up. Whistleblowers may face unfair treatment in the workplace, demotions and even termination — simply for doing what they felt was right.

If you are serving as a whistleblower and need to protect your rights during an internal corporate investigation, consult a skilled Dallas attorney at Whistleblower Law for Managers.

In his new book, "Standing Up to China: How a Whistleblower Risked Everything for His Country," former client & Author, Ashley Yablon, quotes Attorney Steve Kardell about Whistelblower Law.
  • "Steve Kardell was terrific in representing me in some very adversarial discussions with Citigroup and also later represented me in my testimony before the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission."  -Richard Bowen, Citigroup Whistleblower

  • "Incredible knowledge of employee related concerns and equally brilliant knowledge of health care regulations, standards of practice. I would recommend this firm to anyone."  -V.B.

  • "Reaching out to Steve Kardell was the best decision I made. His ability to provide immediate insight and direction was very powerful, and a huge relief during a very stressful time period. For anyone struggling with a whistleblower situation, I would highly recommend at least speaking with Steve. After a 10 minute call with him, I had a better understanding of what I was dealing with. Even better, he gave me some immediate hope. In the end Steve did a better job than I thought was possible. Steve was able to get in contact with people in my organization, that I didn’t have access to. Because of his years of experience, he already has contacts in many organizations in Dallas. The entire situation was handled peacefully. I was impressed by his ability to “keep the peace”–rather than creating a battle with the organization. The reason I didn’t reach out to a lawyer initially, was because I thought it would mean an immediate end to any hope of a positive relationship with the company. Steve was able to address my concerns, and in the end I was able to continue to work for them."  -KS

  • "Never thought my career would end like it did after 30 years of service. I was part of the first round of the so called reduction of force. I asked myself how can I be part of this with 30 years of seniority. How did they pick these 90 plus employees? Now, the culture of this organization made you question every decision they made. It wasn’t what you knew it’s was a culture of who you know. Nonetheless, I did not accept their severance package. I immediately starting looking for an attorney who would take on my case. After the initial call to Steve I had hope again. He was open and honest about everything and reassured me he would do his best for me, and he did. I had an awesome outcome. Thanks Steve you’re the best."  -S.S.
