Stone v. Instrumentation Laboratory Co.

DISCLAIMER: Our firm's past results do not predict or guarantee future success. Each case is unique. Read more

In Brief

The Fourth Circuit held that a SOX complainant may seek review in federal court after the complaint has been pending before DOL for 180 days.

Summary of Filed Complaint

After being promoted to Director of National Accounts in 2005, Stone learned that his superiors were not honoring important contracts and owed over $500,000.  Stone repeatedly raised concern about this to management, and was eventually terminated.

What Happened in Court

The Fourth Circuit held that the language of the SOX whistleblower statute established the absolute right of a whistleblower under SOX to de novo review in federal district court if the Department of Labor failed to issue a final decision within the 180 days they have to do so under the statute.
