The National Law Journal Reports on The Employment Law Group® Law Firm’s Success in Seminal Sarbanes-Oxley Case
The National Law Journal writes about The Employment Law Group® law firm’s recent win before the U.S. Department of Labor’s Administrative Review Board (“ARB”) in an article titled, “Labor Department Expands Whistleblower Protections to a Company’s Contractors.” The article discusses this seminal case, Kalkunte v. DVI Financial Services, Inc., in which the ARB held that Section 806 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (“SOX”) imposes liability on publicly-traded companies as well as contractors of private companies. The article quotes Nicholas Woodfield, a Principal at the Washington-based firm, who noted that “The decision is the first time the Labor Department’s administrative review board has upheld an administrative law judge’s decision in favor of a complainant filing a Sarbanes-Oxley whistleblower retaliation claim.”
Principals Scott Oswald and Nicholas Woodfield of The Employment Law Group® law firm represented Ms. Kalkunte. To learn more about the firm’s Sarbanes-Oxley Whistleblower practice, click here.
