What Employment Protections are Available for SEC Whistleblowers? Chapter 3
Monday, June 26, 2017

Under Dodd-Frank, which created the SEC Whistleblower Program, employers cannot discharge, demote, suspend, harass, or in any way discriminate against employees for raising concerns about a potential securities-law violation. Remedies may include reinstatement, double back pay, litigation costs, expert-witness fees, and attorneys’ fees.

Employees may also have a retaliation claim under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (“SOX”). The remedies are similar to those under Dodd-Frank, but SOX also includes special damages, such as emotional distress, impairment of reputation, and other noneconomic harm resulting from retaliation. A jury recently awarded $11 million to a whistleblower in a SOX retaliation case.
