Retaliation continues to be the most common claim filed with the EEOC – a trend that is unlikely to change if the past twelve years of rising claims are any indication. Recently-enacted provisions of the U.S. Dodd-Frank Act increase protections for whistleblowers and raise the penalties for retaliation against them. However, employers are still struggling to understand the basic components of retaliation and often silo these complaints in the compliance or legal department without seeking HR input.
Andrew Foose, Vice President, Advisory Services, NAVEX Global and Greg Keating, Partner, Littler, provide an overview of the latest whistleblower protection laws, recent cases that have changed the breadth and scope of retaliation and end with practical strategies to mitigate skyrocketing whistleblower and retaliation risk.
