2014 Sox Osha and beyond Litigating Whistleblower Claims

Cynthia N. Sass Labor Attorney


2014 EVENT


Ms. Sass moderated the SOX, OSHA and Beyond: Litigating Whistleblower Claims at the U.S. Department of Labor program co-sponsored by the American Bar Association Section of Labor and Employment Law, The Florida Bar Labor and Employment Law Section and the Hillsborough County Bar Association on December 8, 2014.

The distinguished panel included the U.S. Department of Labor’s Megan Guenther, Edwin G. Foulke, Jr., Esquire of Georgia and Jason Zuckerman, Esquire of D.C., who discussed the DOL’s recently expanded Whistleblower Protection Program and its recently modified procedures for investigating and adjudicating whistleblower claims. In addition, this expert panel offered practical insights on litigating before the DOL, and explored the considerations involved in deciding whether to invoke the “kick out” provisions that allow litigants to bring claims under DOL-enforced statutes in federal court.
