Join Senior Counsel Courtney Worcester, Partner Roger Lane, and Associate Michael Thompson as they present a Web Conference on January 14, 2014, titled "Who Qualifies as a Whistleblower Under Sarbanes-Oxley?"

This November the United States Supreme Court will hear argument in Lawson v. FMR, LLC, which tackles the issue of whether whistleblowers employed by a privately held contractor or subcontractor of a publicly traded company are protected from retaliation under SOX. In the lower court’s opinion in Lawson, the First Circuit answered the question in the negative. Soon after, the Administrative Review Board reached the opposite conclusion and specifically declined to follow Lawson.
