The Employment Law Group,PC. BBB Business Review

Scott Oswald is an accomplished trial lawyer who has brought more than 40 trials to verdict. He has recovered more than $200 million in judgments and settlements for his clients.

A fellow of the prestigious College of Labor and Employment Lawyers, Mr. Oswald received his law degree from Howard University and honed his skills at Trial Lawyers College, founded by the legendary Gerry Spence.

Washingtonian Magazine has named him a “Top Lawyer” in Washington, D.C., most recently in December 2018. In April 2019, Lawdragon ranked him as one of the top 500 plaintiff-side employment lawyers in the United States.

Mr. Oswald litigates employment and whistleblower actions nationwide. He has broken new ground in whistleblower law:

  • First jury verdict (more than $2.1 million) under new whistleblower protections introduced in the National Defense Authorization Act of 2013
  • First Sarbanes-Oxley Act liability verdict to withstand appeal
  • First reported jury verdict under 2009 anti-retaliation provisions of False Claims Act
  • First Dodd-Frank Act retaliation lawsuit to reach discovery in federal court

Mr. Oswald has significant experience with qui tam or whistleblower rewards cases. He has fought for employees’ rights under federal and state anti-discrimination statutes and represents clients in non-compete, wage, and overtime actions. He has spoken up for whistleblowers before federal agencies and on Capitol Hill.

A recipient of numerous legal awards, Mr. Oswald has been recognized as one of the top 100 Super Lawyers in Washington, DC, for the past five years. He is a seven-time honoree in the Best Lawyers in America and is rated 10 out of 10 by Avvo.

Mr. Oswald is chair of the Federal Bar Association’s Qui Tam Section and the immediate past chair of the FBA’s Professional Ethics Committee. He is co-chair of an employment law subcommittee at the American Bar Association, and he has roles in other professional groups including the D.C. Bar and the National Employment Lawyers Association.

Mr. Oswald is a proud past president of the Metropolitan Washington Employment Lawyers Association and currently heads its Bench-Bar Committee.


Mr. Oswald is an innovator in using whistleblower anti-retaliation laws to obtain money damages for whistleblowers. Notably, Mr. Oswald was Sheila Kalkunte’s lead trial counsel in her ground-breaking Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) whistleblower retaliation claim, which was the first successful SOX retaliation trial verdict to withstand appeal. Mr. Oswald was Dr. Weihua Huang’s trial counsel in the first reported successful jury verdict under the whistleblower retaliation provisions of the False Claims Act since the 2009 Fraud Enforcement and Recovery Act. Mr Oswald was counsel in the first federal court Dodd Frank Act anti-retaliation suit to withstand a motion to dismiss and proceed to discovery.

Mr. Oswald uses the protections afforded whistleblowers to prevent employers from wrongfully terminating whistleblowers’ employment. For example, Mr. Oswald was Dr. Ning Shen’s counsel in her successful action to prevent the United States Department Veterans Affairs from terminating her employment while she litigated her employment claims.

Mr. Oswald is one of the few attorneys to prosecute a Maryland wrongful discharge claim to a winning jury verdict and to prosecute a Maryland retaliation claim to a winning punitive damages jury verdict. His successes have been chronicled and comments featured in numerous publications including The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, The National Law Journal, The Federal Times, BNA’s Daily Labor Report, LawyersUSA, Law360, Virginia Lawyers Weekly, Workforce Management Magazine, Washington Lawyer Magazine, Medical Practice Compliance Alert, Crain’s Detroit Business, Human Resource Executive, and LegalBiz Now.

Mr. Oswald, who holds a Top Secret security clearance, lectures extensively on employment and whistleblower law, especially on the trial of employment and whistleblower protection claims in state and federal courts under the False Claims Act, the Dodd-Frank Act, the Sarbanes Oxley Act, FMLA, Title VII, ADEA and wrongful discharge and termination in violation of state public policy. He is the faculty chair of The D.C. Bar’s “Changing Currents in Employment Law” CLE and a regular panelist on the D.C. Bar’s “Fundamentals of Employment Law” series and is asked to speak regularly on ways to maximize damages recoveries in the trial of employment and whistleblower protection claims. To that end, in 2010 The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission invited Mr. Oswald to testify on the remedies that the EEOC should seek in its federal court enforcement of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA), and in 2011 the Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration invited Mr. Oswald to guide it in restructuring its Whistleblower Protection Program.

Mr. Oswald has authored numerous articles on federal and state whistleblower and employment law protections. He authors a chapter on The District of Columbia Whistleblower Protection Act and Exceptions to The Doctrine of Employment At Will for the D.C. Practice Manual and is the editor of the Whistleblower Law Blog. Mr. Oswald has authored numerous amicus curiae briefs on whistleblower protection and employment discrimination issues including Lawson v. FMR LLC (which argues to the U.S. Supreme Court on behalf of the National Employment Lawyers Association for broad employer coverage under the anti-retaliation provisions of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act)  VanBuren v. Grugg (which argued for – and the Virginia Supreme Court adopted – individual manager liability under the tort of wrongful discharge in violation of Virginia public policy); Jordan v. IBM (which argued for a broad application of the anti-retaliation provisions of Title VII), Johnson v. Siemens (which argued – and the court later held – that subsidiaries of publicly traded companies are covered entities under, and therefore subject to, the Sarbanes Oxley Act’s anti-retaliation provisions), Bonds v. Leavitt (which argued for – and the court later followed – an expansive interpretation of the term “disclosures” in the Whistleblower Protection Act to guarantee maximum protection for government whistleblowers),  Villanueva v. Core Laboratories NV (which argued for an extraterritorial application of anti-retaliation provisions of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act ) and is active in efforts at the national and state level to strengthen legal protections for whistleblowers and employees.

Mr. Oswald received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Virginia.
