America’s workers are at the forefront of holding corporations and government agencies accountable for their misconduct by reporting unlawful activity and publicizing wrongdoing. It is an unfortunate reality of today’s workplace that these courageous employees are often retaliated against, suffering fierce reprisals for engaging in protected activity and blowing the whistle on their employer’s misdeeds. Shining The Light On Whistleblower & Retaliation Claims will provide practitioners with the tools to advocate and enforce employees’ rights. In addition to reviewing significant legal developments in whistleblower and retaliation law, veteran trial lawyers, government officials, and other experts will share their strategies for identifying and litigating retaliation claims, pursuing qui tam lawsuits under federal and state False Claims Acts, using special federal protections for whistleblowers, examining new reward programs for whistleblowers, and other topics.
