Topic: False Claims Act
By: Jennifer Horvath, Partner, Braumiller Law Group
Tuesday, March 17th, 9:50am – 10:50am
“As Customs has ramped up enforcement on antidumping/countervailing duties (ADD/CVD) along with other priority issues such as classification, there has been an increased trend toward False Claims Act (FCA) cases being filed. FCA cases – also known as “whistleblower” cases – have their basis in the government being deprived of revenue. FCA cases can be filed by individuals who allege wrongdoing by a company to intentionally defraud the government of revenue owed. The individual can then receive a percentage of the collected revenue should the case be deemed legitimate by the government. We will discuss the most common types of claims made under the FCA for revenue owed to Customs, the elements of an FCA case, and how importing companies can help mitigate the potential for FCA claims.” Click here to read Jennifer’s Bio.
