Posted on July 23, 2013

In the latest press roundup for The Employment Law Group law firm, coverage of Edward Snowden continued with CCTV America as well as a major report on the Obama administration’s crack down on leaks from McClatchy.

CCTV America interviewed R. Scott Oswald, managing principal, and David Scher, principal, at The Employment Law Group law firm about developments in the Edward Snowden story:

McClatchy reported about an internal policy handed down from President Obama encouraging federal government employees to spy on their co-workers to prevent leaks. R. Scott Oswald answered their questions about this policy.

In other reports, Law360 interviewed R. Scott Oswald and David Scher about legal developments at the state and federal level. R. Scott Oswald discussed a retroactive ruling for federal whistleblowers while David Scher addressed inquiry by the New York Attorney General into payroll cards with possible wider implications.

Adam Augustine Carter spoke to the Gazette about a ruling in a case against The Landon School in Bethesda, Maryland. A judge ruled that a discrimination and wrongful termination suit can go to trial in August.

Employer reviews are the subject of a post quoting David Scher for the Yahoo! Finance’s The Exchange Blog. Scher commented on how employers can expect their employees to use the Internet more and more to vent their frustrations without fear of reprisal.
