Do You Need a Sarbanes-Oxley Whistleblower Lawyer?
Do you face wrongful termination because you reported corporate fraud or wrongdoing?
- Has your boss retaliated against you after you uncovered illegal or unethical conduct?
- Is your career on the line because you did the right thing and spoke out?
The Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) is a federal law that forbids retaliation against whistleblowers who have some connection to publicly traded companies, including connections to a company’s subsidiaries, contractors, or employees. SOX protects the reporting of several types of fraud — not necessarily by the company itself — and provides damages for any illegal harm suffered by a good-faith whistleblower. If you were fired illegally, SOX may help you to get your job back.
