New Book Helps Employers Avoid Whistleblower Retaliation Claims

by Rick Turoczy on June 22, 2006

Practising Law Institute (PLI), the nation’s leading provider of continuing legal education, has announced the release of “Corporate Whistleblowing in the Sarbanes-Oxley Era” — the first comprehensive guide to whistleblower protections and rights under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX), federal and state whistleblower statutes and common law.

Featuring numerous case law citations with commentary, “Corporate Whistleblowing in the Sarbanes-Oxley Era” provides employers and their attorneys with essential information on how to examine and adjudicate whistleblower retaliation complaints at the administrative law level and in the federal courts.

Corporate Whistleblowing in the Sarbanes-Oxley Era explains how a retaliation complaint proceeds, including the four principal elements an employee must show to establish a prima facie case. It goes on to explain what constitutes the “clear and convincing” evidence that an employer can present to demonstrate that it had a legitimate purpose or motive for its adverse action against an employee.

“Corporate Whistleblowing in the Sarbanes-Oxley Era” also details the practical steps employers can take to avoid retaliation complaints, including how to train managers and officers on how to deal with whistleblowers and with sensitive situations that give rise to whistleblower lawsuits.

Included in “Corporate Whistleblowing in the Sarbanes-Oxley Era” are the text of Section 806 of SOX, a comprehensive chart of state whistleblower statutes, federal whistleblower statutes and excerpts from the OSHA Whistleblower Investigations Manual.

Written and edited by attorneys of Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP, New York City, one of the nation’s leading employment law firms, “Corporate Whistleblowing in the Sarbanes- Oxley Era” is $195 and is available for a 30-day trial examination.
