The Employment Law Group® Attorney Quoted in Law360 Article on DOL ARB Decision Broadening the Scope of Coverage under SOX

The Employment Law Group® attorney Jason Zuckerman was quoted in a Law360 article titled DOL Board Clarifies Scope of Whistleblower Protection regarding the DOL Administrative Review Board’s recent decision in Johnson v. Siemens Building Technologies, Inc.:

Jason Zuckerman, a principal at The Employment Law Group®, who filed an amicus brief on behalf of whistleblower advocacy groups, said that federal courts will likely heed the decision.“Obviously, Congress intended to protect employees of subsidiaries of publicly traded companies,” Zuckerman said. “Tragically, many meritorious claims were dismissed due to strained and overly narrow constructions of the scope of SOX coverage.”The decision represents the current board’s move toward a broader construction of Sarbanes-Oxley, he said.

The ARB held in Johnson that the whistleblower provision of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) applies to employees of subsidiaries of publicly-traded companies and Section 929A of the Dodd-Frank Act  further clarified that SOX whistleblower protection coverage extends to employees of subsidiaries of publicly-traded companies.
