The Corporate Whistleblower Center says,There is little oversight for billing practices for procedures and treatments involving Medicare at many hospitals, or healthcare facilities in our opinion. Skilled nursing facilities and nursing homes can be cash cows for people who want to take advantage of the system. Because of this, opportunities for whistleblowers to come forward and be rewarded are very real, and we’d like to talk to anyone with well documented proof to call us anytime at 866-714-6466.

Penalties for Medicare fraudas well as the rewards for whistleblowerscan be astronomical. Recently, The Ensign Group, which operates skilled nursing facilities throughout the United States, agreed to pay $ 48 million to settle allegations that it submitted fraudulent claims to Medicare for services that were not medically necessary. According to the suit, from 1999 to 2011, allegedly six different skilled nursing facilities routinely submitted false claims to the government for services that included physical and speech therapy, even though they were not medically necessary for the patients. This was allegedly done to increase their Medicare reimbursement.

The two whistleblowers in this case will both receive a portion of the $ 48 million settlement.

Taking advantage of senior citizens and their conditions in order to bilk the government out of taxpayer dollars is not something that should be tolerated by anyone, says the Corporate Whistleblower Center. We are asking all insiders who have documented proof of ongoing Medicare fraud to contact us at 866-714-6466. We keep all calls confidential, and we will explain the whistleblower reward program and process to you, then help you get your case to the best whistleblower attorneys in the country. http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com

Madison, Wis. (PRWEB) June 13, 2012

According to a recent PNC Bank study, more than 60 percent of small business owners are currently projecting that their sales will increase over the next six months. Accordingly, a third of small business owners expect that because of increasing sales, they will hire at least one full-time employee over the next six months. BizFilings, a leader in online incorporation and a supporter of small businesses, wants small business owners to be fully prepared to embark on the hiring process and is offering tips to prepare a small business for hiring.

According to BizFilings, hiring an employee can impact the bottom line of a business, its important to make sure that a business is fully ready for hiring new employees. To assist entrepreneurs during this time of growth, BizFilings presents three important things small businesses should be aware of before hiring employees that will position them for a successful future.

Apply and obtain all necessary licenses, permits and insurance before hiring. Different small businesses require different paperwork, and theres no better time to get that squared away before bringing another person onboard. Additionally, some businesses will require employees to have licenses (often that are separate from the business itself). Insurance is also crucial for small businesses workers compensation insurance is mandatory for any small business, while disability insurance (which covers eligible employees for non-work-related sickness or injury) is required for small business in only certain states.

Be prepared for payroll taxes. When an employee is hired at a small business, various types of new tax obligations, as well as payroll tax deductions, arise. For example, federal and state taxes generally are withheld from employees wages, along with half of FICA taxes. Small business owners typically must pay the matching half of FICA taxes as well as federal and state unemployment taxes. Payroll taxes can become even more complex if there are different forms of employee compensation such as tips, expense reimbursements or retirement contributions. For more help with payroll taxes, refer to IRS Publication 15, the Employers Tax Guide, to understand tax obligations as an employer.

Consider incorporation to protect your business. According to BizFilings, there are many tax breaks that can come from incorporating a small business. Incorporation provides liability protection giving a layer of protection between employers personal assets and business debts. Hiring employees is an important next step for small businesses but incorporation is a crucial step to help mitigate risk for the next phase of a business.

Entrepreneurs are making this country better by providing an increasing number of jobs, and its no surprise that the second half of 2012 is projected to continue that trend, says Karen Kobelski, member of the executive leadership team at BizFilings. Its important for small business owners to make sure that theyre covered in case of the worst case scenario because by adding an employee youre not only growing your company but growing your level of risk as well.
