What is Auto Safety Fraud & Concealment?
Since 2016, the U.S. Department of Transportation, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), operates a whistleblower program that authorizes the government to pay rewards – of up to 30% – to auto industry insiders who expose auto safety issues and non-compliance with the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1966 that results in a penalty in excess of $1 million. Auto safety whistleblowers are also protected from retaliation by their employers.
At Mehri & Skalet, we have a deep understanding of the NHTSA whistleblower program’s requirements and protections. In fact, M&S Partner, Cleveland Lawrence III, testified before a congressional committee in 2015 about the importance of strengthening the program, months before the law creating the program was enacted.
