TELG Publishes Article on Federal Whistleblower Protection Legislation

R. Scott Oswald and Jason Zuckerman, principals at The Employment Law Group® law firm, published an article in the Taxpayers Against Fraud Education Fund Quarterly Review outlining recently enacted federal whistleblower protections and whistleblower reward statutes.  Recognizing the critical role that whistleblowers play in exposing financial fraud, threats to public health and safety, and fraud committed against the government, Congress has enacted numerous robust whistleblower protection laws and strengthened existing whistleblower protection statutes.  The article discusses the whistleblower provisions of the False Claims Act, American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, Federal Acquisitions Streamlining Act, Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX), Consumer Product Safety Reform Act, Consumer Financial Protection Act of 2010, Dodd-Frank Act, and Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, and offers practical tips on claim selection, forum selection, maximizing damages, pleading whistleblower retaliation claims, and prosecuting whistleblower claims.
