U.S. Bank in Seattle Ordered to Reinstate Sarbanes-Oxley Whistleblower
On June 1, 2010, OHSA ordered U.S. Bank in Seattle to reinstate a former manager fired in retaliation for filing an internal complaint alleging securities and bank fraud by company employees. The Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) protects employees who engage in protected activity by providing information that the employee reasonably believes constitutes a violation of federal mail, wire, bank or securities fraud; federal law relating to fraud against shareholders; or any rule or regulation of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
