Whistleblower lawyer Jason Zuckerman spoke at an ABA program titled SOX, OSHA and Beyond: Litigating Whistleblower Claims at the U.S. Department of Labor. Zuckerman joined a distinguished panel, including Megan Guenther, Counsel for Whistleblower Programs in the Solicitor’s Office at the U.S. Department of Labor, Edwin G. Foulke, Jr., a partner at Fisher & Phillips LLP and former Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health, and Cynthia N. Sass, owner of Law Offices of Cynthia N. Sass, P.A.
The panelists discussed DOL’s recently-expanded Whistleblower Protection Program and its recently-modified procedures for investigating and adjudicating whistleblower claims. In addition, the panel offered practical insights on litigating before the DOL, and explored the considerations involved in deciding whether to invoke the “kick out” provisions that allow litigants to bring claims under DOL-enforced statutes in federal court. In addition, the panelists discussed recent cases construing the whistleblower protection provisions of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.
The course materials for this program include the ABA 2014 Annual Update on the Whistleblower Provisions of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. Firm Principal Jason Zuckerman has been a contributing author to that outline for the past decade.
Last month Zuckerman spoke at the ABA’s Annual Labor and Employment Conference on a panel about developments and trends in Sarbanes-Oxley and Dodd-Frank Whistleblower litigation. A paper that Zuckerman co-authored for that panel is available here.
Washington DC whistleblower law firm Zuckerman Law represents whistleblowers nationwide under federal whistleblower protection laws, including the Whistleblower Protection Act, the Sarbanes-Oxley whistleblower law, and the False Claims Act and NDAA anti-retaliation provisions.
