Unbeknownst to many employment attorneys, their cases frequently involve facts that invoke the False Claims Act (FCA). This program will provide employment lawyers with the basic tools to identify and understand the frequent overlap between employment cases and qui tam litigation. Topics covered by the session will include what questions to ask clients to determine if the FCA is implicated, the role of the Department of Justice in a qui tam case, and the unique procedural hoops that are mandatory to follow when filing a claim under the FCA.
Speaker: M. Anderson Berry
Moderator: Scott Stillman
The Labor and Employment Law Section of the California Lawyers Association is committed to encouraging the representation of persons of color, women, the LGBTQ community, people with disabilities and other underrepresented groups in the area of employment law.
As such, the Labor and Employment Law Section has committed to provide a full scholarship to those persons who have traditionally been underrepresented in our field in order to become familiar with the Labor and Employment Law Section and to encourage their membership and association.

The March issue of our Section’s Labor & Employment Law Review will feature an article by Lara C. de Leon and Christopher Olmsted on “California’s Fair Pay Act.” Joel Grossman also contributes an article on the recent Ninth Circuit decision in Poublon v.
