SOX, OSHA and Beyond: Litigating Whistleblower Claims at the U.S. Department of Labor
Belo Mansion, 11:30 AM GMT
From the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and the Affordable Care Act to the Occupational Safety and Health Act, more than 25 whistleblower statutes are now enforced by the United States Department of Labor. Given the rise in whistleblower protections, practitioners need to know how to navigate the DOL’s administrative adjudication process for whistleblower claims. A distinguished panel, featuring James Culp, the DOL's Regional Solicitor, along with experienced law firm and in-house practitioners, will discuss DOL’s recently-expanded Whistleblower Protection Program and its recently-modified procedures for investigating and adjudicating whistleblower claims. In addition, the expert panel will offer practical insights on litigating before the DOL, and explore 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.
