*Whether internal disclosures are protected under Dodd-Frank
*The Labor Department’s Administration Review Board and federal court decisions on the scope of protected conduct under SOX
*The use of “purloined” documents to prove retaliation claims
*Trends in OSHA enforcement of whistleblower protection laws
*Recent decisions construing the 2009 amendments to the False Claims Act
*Extraterritorial application of SOX and Dodd-Frank
*Important distinctions in the remedies and causation standards of each of these statutes
*Implementation of the 2013 NDAA contractor whistleblower protection provisions.
