How to Avoid Claims of Retaliation and Whistleblowing
Retaliation claims by whistleblowers are on the rise, and it’s not just Title VII claims that should be cause for concern by employers. A number of other laws – including OSHA, Sarbanes-Oxley, Dodd-Frank, and CERCLA – also protect whistleblowers.
Speaking at McAfee & Taft’s EmployerLINC17 seminar in Oklahoma City in a presentation titled “How to Avoid Claims of Retaliation and Whistleblowing,” labor and employment attorneys Elizabeth Bowersox and Tony Puckett discuss how retaliation claims commonly occur, the consequences companies face when a whistleblower lodges a claim, and what steps employers can take to avoid such claims.
