Ninth Circuit: U.S. ex rel. Welch v. My Left Foot

Requiring employees to arbitrate FCA qui tam claims pursuant to private employment contracts will deter relators from reporting fraud and severely undermine the purpose of the FCA, which is to enlist private individuals with information about fraud to bring that information to the Government’s attention and to add to the Government’s resources in combatting fraud.
