Dodd-Frank Act Co-Author Rep. Barney Frank to Retire after Current Term

Representative Barney Frank, co-architect of t...

This week Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) announced that he would not seek a 17th term in office and would retire from the House of Representatives at the end of his current term. Rep. Frank served as the chairman of the House Financial Services Committee from 2007 to 2011 and co-authored the landmark Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, which was signed into law in 2010.

Rep. Frank is also well-known for his role in the passage of consumer rights legislation such as the Credit Cardholders’ Bill of Rights Act of 2008 and his activism on behalf of equal employment rights. Rep. Frank repeatedly introduced the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) in the House and advocated for the bill’s adoption, which would prohibit workplace discrimination against employees on the basis of their sexual orientation or gender identity.

The Dodd-Frank financial reform law contains several whistleblower provisions designed to increase disclosure of fraudulent financial schemes and to protect whistleblowers from retaliation by their employers. The Employment Law Group® law firm attorneys have substantial experience litigating whistleblower retaliation claims on behalf of employees and, as leaders in the field of whistleblower protection, have authored articles in various professional publications on the Dodd-Frank reforms since the law went into effect last year:
