Whistleblowing in the workplace raises challenging employment law and civil and criminal liability issues for employers. News media coverage of and social media campaigns on everything from sexual harassment to financial reporting, to government contracting, to environmental issues, and a host of other laws have resulted in a large number of whistleblowing claims. This program will address what employers must do to prepare for the time when an employee blows the whistle internally, or reports to law enforcement. Our presenters will discuss and answer your questions on:
- The legal protections for whistleblowers;
- How to effectively investigate a whistleblower complaint;
- How employers can manage a whistleblower after a complaint so as to avoid “retaliation” claims; and
- How an employer can make sure that HR and Management have appropriate legal protection in cases of whistleblowing
This program will also provide attendees with Bryan Cave’s “Whistleblower Litigation Mitigation Checklist”, a general compliance tool listing proactive steps a company can take to avoid becoming subject to a whistleblower complaint.
