Physicians Choice Laboratory Services (PCLS) entered into a severance agreement with a former employee with a projected pay-out of approximately $6 million. This case was significant because it involved a potential vast expansion of protections available to former employees under the retaliation provisions of the False Claims Act. If the plaintiff's claims survive summary judgment, the result would be that a former employee could avail himself of the qui tam provisions of the FCA even though he is not an employee, contractor or agent—the three specific categories of protected individuals under the FCA.
