Following passage of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, which introduced criminal as well as civil liability for retaliating against certain types of whistleblowers in the private sector, retaliation claims have been filed with increasing frequency. Attorneys who file or defend these claims will want to stay on top of expanded whistleblower protections and related procedural developments in both the private and public sectors. Whistleblowing: The Law of Retaliatory Discharge, Second Edition explains the nuts and bolts of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, and other applicable federal and state laws, tracking litigation, and new legislation in detail to give practitioners up-to-date information on the latest issues, procedural problems, tactics, and strategies. The treatise provides analysis of developments related to The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2009, which created whistleblower protections for employees in the health care sector, and the Dodd-Frank Act, which provides expansive protection to whistleblowers in the financial services industries, creates new protections for employees who report concerns to the new Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection, and creates new financial incentives for employees to report to the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission.
