The New York City False Claims Act allows employees to bring suit in the city of New York’s name based on fraudulent conduct that affects local government. The statute addresses a wide array of wrongdoing. An employee who is retaliated against for bringing such a claim is entitled to double back pay. Like the federal qui tam statute, stringent procedural requirements apply in order to establish a viable claim under the act.
