BBA Virtual CLE: It’s a Mess Out There: An Update on Whistleblower Retaliation Law

Wednesday, February 24, 2021 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM
On-Line


Description:

The BBA presents live webinars and virtual events via Zoom. Please register for this program through your BBA account at least two hours before the start time of the program to receive the Zoom webinar link.

Join us for a CLE to review the dizzying array of statutory and common-law protections afforded to employees who blow the whistle at work—a list that continues to expand with recent federal statutes. The program will discuss major laws of which employees, management, and practitioners should be aware, and the often unique procedural schemes governing their enforcement.

Among the topics covered will be:

    • The major federal antiretaliation laws administered by OSHA, including the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX), OSHA Section 11(c), and new statutes protecting tax, antitrust, and money-laundering whistleblowers.
    • The administrative procedures and prerequisites that whistleblowers in OSHA must follow.
    • The False Claims Act and other major federal antiretaliation statutes outside the OSHA framework.
    • State-law protections such as the Massachusetts False Claims Act, Health Care Worker Whistleblower Act, and Public Employee Whistleblower Act, and the doctrine of wrongful termination against public policy.
