Over the last two decades, state and federal lawmakers have passed a considerable amount of legislation to incentivize and protect whistleblowers in both the private and public sectors. Whistleblowers are increasingly seen as the best source of information about waste, fraud, and abuse in the public sector, and as helping promote accountability, compliance and safety in the private sector. However, whistleblowing continues to raise significant concerns around privacy, security, and confidentiality. In this volume, you will access an in-depth, balanced overview of whistleblower law and the many issues facing practitioners today. Topics include: 1. Major legislation, including the False Claims Act of 1863, the Sarbanes Oxley Act of 2002, and The Dodd-Frank Act 2. Whistleblower protections in the areas of consumer and investor affairs, nuclear and environmental law, and transportation 3. Survey of state laws and the District of Columbia 4. Whistleblower incentive programs, including those from the SEC, CFTC, and IRS 5. Unique challenges faced by whistleblowing attorneys and compliance officers 6 Employer considerations, including preventative measures, investigations, disclosures, privilege, and settlements. This online, interactive treatise offers both state-by-state coverage of the various laws for those representing whistleblower and employer risk mitigation advice for companies. Updates are included in an annual subscription.
