Legal Times Reports About The Employment Law Group® Law Firm’s Landmark Success in Whistleblower Protection Act Case
Legal Times reports about the October 7, 2008 decision in Drake v. Agency for International Development, where the Federal Circuit held that a foreign service investigator and client of The Employment Law Group® law firm did not need to prove actual violations of the law to be protected under the Whistleblower Protection Act (“WPA”). The decision is significant for whistleblowers because it establishes that to be protected under the WPA, a whistleblower need only prove that he had a reasonable belief that there was a violation of a law, rule or regulation.
