The Sarbanes-Oxley Act (Whistleblower)

The Sarbanes-Oxley Act

Our whistleblower attorneys represent employees who are protected under The Sarbanes-Oxley Act (“SOX”), which prohibits employers from retaliating against employees who report a federal offense by a public company boards, management and public accounting firms fraud. Under SOX, an employee of a public company may not be retaliated against for disclosing conduct that the employee reasonably believes violates federal law relating to fraud against the shareholders.

For example, under SOX, a company cannot retaliate against an employee for reporting fraud in publicly traded companies internally or to a government agency such as:

  • deceiving and manipulating investors with the intentional result of theft
  • deceitful accounting practices
  • deceitful financial statements and disclosures
