WASHINGTON, DC, USA, April 24, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Illinois Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "We are urging an employee of a highway, building contractor or company in Illinois or nationwide that is involved in providing services to the federal government to call us anytime at 866-714-6466 if their employer is not paying mandated Davis Bacon prevailing wage to their employees. The reward potential for this specific type of information can be very significant. The catch is the employer must be misrepresenting what they are paying their employees to the government." http://Illinois.CorporateWhistleblower.Com
What might a Davis Bacon Act Violation look like: "Let’s say there is a highway contractor or a general contractor in Illinois working on a federally funded highway project, or VA hospital. The hypothetical company has 100 employees that are laborers. The prevailing wage for the area where the work is being done is $25 per hour-as per the Davis Bacon. The job will last for 15 months and during this time the laborers are all working 40-hour work weeks. In this scenario a laborer should be making $1000 per week or $4000 per month if they are making $25 per hour.
"However, if the laborer is only being paid $17.50 per hour they will be making $700 per month. This is a $300 difference. If we multiply the $300 difference X 100 (the number of laborers) the total is $30,000 per week or $120,000 per month X 15 months equals $1,800,000. The catch is the company/contractor must be falsely reporting they are paying the prevailing wage.
"This $1,800,000 number is just a starting point as we would like to discuss with a potential whistleblower anytime at 866-714-6466. We can potentially help a whistleblower increase this number. As an example, if the contractor has been doing the same thing on other jobs over the last four years the potential whistleblower reward- might increase-significantly-and we would like to help someone to get rewarded for this type of information. Why sit on a potentially winning lotto ticket without ever knowing what it might be worth?" http://Illinois.CorporateWhistleblower.Com

Simple rules for a whistleblower from the Illinois Corporate Whistleblower Center: Do not go to the government first if you are a potential whistleblower with substantial proof of wrongdoing. The Illinois 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/employer or individual to come clean about significant fraud involving paying mandated Davis Bacon wages on federal jobs, Medicare fraud, overbilling the federal government for services never rendered, multi-million-dollar state or federal tax evasion, or an Illinois based company falsely claiming to be a minority owned business to get preferential treatment on federal or state projects. Come to us first, tell us what type of information you have, and if we think it’s sufficient, we will help you with a focus on you getting rewarded.”
Unlike any group in the US the Corporate Whistleblower Center can assist a potential whistleblower with packaging or building out their information to potentially increase the reward potential. They will also provide the whistleblower with access to some of the most skilled whistleblower attorneys in the nation.
