Whistleblowing, Sarbanes-Oxley & Retaliation

There are now more than fifty federal laws that contain some degree of anti-retaliation or whistleblower protection.  Among the federal employment laws that prohibit retaliation against employees who have opposed unlawful actions are Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, ERISA, the National Labor Relations Act, and the Family and Medical Leave Act.  

The labor and employment attorneys at Taft draft and assist employers with the necessary policies and procedures for dealing with, and more importantly, avoiding whistleblowing and retaliation claims by employees, both domestically and abroad.

Taft attorneys are experienced in investigating and defending retaliation claims and litigation when they arise.
