JCCI Legal Luncheon Seminar “Whistleblowing and Retaliation Claims”

Tuesday, October 20, 2015 - Tuesday, October 20, 2015
1:00 pm New York - 3:00 pm New York

Please join Paul Hastings LLP and JCCI for a special legal lunch seminar designed to increase your understanding of whistleblowing and retaliation claims. Since the financial crisis of 2008, the number of employees who report corporate activity they believe to be dishonest or illegal has increased steadily. So, too, has the number of federal, state and local laws that incentivize whistleblowers with financial awards and protect them from retaliation. Employees have long been protected under a variety of employment laws, but the opportunities to become a “whistleblower” have broadened as have the penalties for retaliation. (Note: This seminar will be conducted in English.)

Discussion Topics

  • Recent developments in securities and employment laws protecting whistleblowers

  • Perspectives from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission on retaliation in the workplace

  • Best practices when responding to whistleblowers and government investigations

  • Mistakes to avoid during internal investigations of complaints and Strategies to avoid litigation

Attendance Fee: 60 (members) / $80 (non-members)
