Decisions refine SOX whistleblower protection
It’s been four and a half years since Congress enacted the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) affording broad protection for employees who report activities they reasonably believe to be fraudulent and misleading to investors in publicly traded companies. Last year the Washington Post reported that approximately 750 people had filed complaints with the Department of Labor (DOL) since SOX was enacted.
