Program Description: The False Claims Act (FCA) is an important tool to discover fraud and abuse against the United States. The FCA not only recovers the fraudulently obtained money, but also seeks to deter future fraudulent acts and encourage ethical behavior in dealings with the government. Also known as the “Lincoln Law,” the FCA was passed during the Civil War to deter fraud by companies selling goods and services to the Army. In recent years, the FCA has come under criticism by some for failing to effectively detect and prevent fraud. Join us for a discussion of the issues surrounding the False Claims Act and whether or not reform of the law is necessary.
