WASHINGTON, April 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "We have launched a national and simultaneously a state specific initiative to identify whistleblowers whose employer has falsely claimed to be a minority or woman owned business. We are urging employees at a company like this to call us anytime at 866-714-6466. As we would like to discuss when it comes to federal contracts-many federal agencies are required to give 10% of their jobs to minority or women owned businesses. Because these federal contracts can involve millions of dollars the potential whistleblower reward can exceed a million dollars as we would like to discuss anytime." http://CorporateWhistleblower.Com
The Corporate Whistleblower Center is targeting the following types of contractors that are falsely claiming to minority or woman owned to gain an unfair advantage on federal bids for work:
- Road or highway builders
- Contractors building base housing for families at military bases
- Environmental clean-up contractors providing services to the EPA
- Security contractors providing security for federal buildings or installations
- Transportation companies providing trucking/logistics services for the US Government
- Moving or storage contractors providing services to the Department of Defense
- Food or food services companies proving services to the Department of Agriculture for school lunch programs.
According to the Corporate Whistleblower Center, "We are almost certain some to most employees working for a company providing services to the government would know if their employer had falsely claimed to be a minority or woman owned business to gain an unfair advantage in the bidding process for federal jobs. If you have this type of information please call us at 866-714-6466 and allow us to explain to you how the federal whistleblower reward program works. Why sit on a winning lotto ticket without ever knowing what it might be worth?" http://CorporateWhistleblower.Com
Simple rules for a whistleblower from the Corporate Whistleblower: Do not go to the government first if you are a major whistleblower. The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "Major whistleblowers frequently go to the government thinking they will help. It's a huge mistake. Do not go to the news media with your whistleblower information. Public revelation of a whistleblower's information could destroy any prospect for a reward. Do not try to force a company or individual to come clean about a company falsely claiming to be a minority or woman owned business to take advantage of lucrative federal contracts. Come to us first, tell us what type of information you have, and if we think it's sufficient, we will help find the right law firms to assist in advancing your information and we will assist in building out your information."
