The federal False Claims Act makes it unlawful to retaliate against or fire an employee who has reported Medicare fraud in the certain circumstances that the law covers.  What this means is depending on what you report about Medicare fraud and who you report it to you may be protected from retaliation or firing.  Just any reporting may not qualify an employee for legal protection against or from being fired.
