Extended Whistleblower Protections Create More Liability for Companies

, New York Law Journal


J. Gregory Lahr and Ryan C. Chapoteau, partners at Sedgwick, discuss the implications of the U.S. Supreme Court recently expanding the whistleblower anti-retaliation protections of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 to include employees of privately held contractors who perform work for public companies.

    Good to see private companies come under Sarbanes Oxley Act as well. This will help with better governance and increase the accountability. I work with McGladrey and there’s an article on our website about SOX Act that highlights the need for a newly re-focused evaluation of internal controls that readers of this article may find it useful @ “SOX Reset 2014” http://bit.ly/1g4aX8C
