The FCA provides protections for whistleblowers in connection with their whistleblowing activities. To establish that an employer retaliated against an employee in violation of 31 U.S.C. § 3730(h), an employee must demonstrate that:
- The employee engaged in protected activity.
- The employer knew that the employee was engaged in protected activity.
- As a result of the above, the employee was discriminated against.
