2012 Opens The Door For More Whistleblower Participation

Law360, New York (January 03, 2013, 1:12 PM ET) — This year was marked by a number of favorable developments in employment law for whistleblowers. Those remarkable developments may further open the door to greater whistleblower revelations in the future, resulting in fewer laws being broken, savings for taxpayers, safer working conditions, increased awards to relators, other benefits and even lives being saved.

The U.S. Department of Justice had a record year in False Claims Act collections, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and Internal Revenue Service Whistleblower Offices issued significant and record awards, greater protections were extended to federal whistleblowers, states continued expanding FCA coverage, protected activity for Sarbanes-Oxley Act whistleblowers was enlarged, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Administrative Review Board (ARB) continued a whistleblower-friendly trend, juries applied the FCA’s Fraud Enforcement and Recovery Act (FERA) amendments, and federal employees were confirmed as potential FCA relators.
