The treatise focuses on the anti-retaliation provisions of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX). The report details the elements of a whistleblower claim and possible defenses under SOX, as well as recent influential court decisions that address issues such as SOX’s extraterritorial reach and applicability for employees of contractors, subcontractors and agents. The report also summarizes the Securities and Exchange Commission’s whistleblower program, as well as the anti-retaliation provisions of the Dodd-Frank Act.
The report is an exhaustive and comprehensive analysis of Sarbanes-Oxley and a valuable resource for whistleblower attorneys and corporate employers, and is available to members of the Labor and Employment Law Section of the American Bar Association through the website of the Federal Labor Standards Legislation Committee.
