Miami-Dade County, Florida False Claims Ordinance

The Miami-Dade County False Claims Ordinance allows whistleblowers who know of violations of the law to bring a civil action in the name of the county.

A successful whistleblower will receive 10 percent of the recovery where the county pursues the action; if the county does not pursue the action a successful whistleblower will receive 25 percent of the recovery. These amounts may be reduced if the whistleblower planned, initiated, or furthered the violation.
