An administrative judge decision expanded the interpretation of the statute of limitations on SOX claims in a way favorable to whistleblowers.
Summary of Filed Complaint
After Garey disclosed a number of financial concerns in the company, she was denied medical leave and told she would be terminated if she did not find a new position within the company.
What Happened in Court
An administrative judge held that the statute of limitations period on a SOX complaint did not start when the employee was told she would be terminated if she did not find an alternative position by a certain date, but rather when her indefinite extension of “a few days” to review and consider available positions within Best Buy was revoked.
