In This Issue:

The Sarbanes-Oxley Act provides whistleblower protection to certain employees who report wrongdoing by a publicly-traded company; A federal district court in Massachusetts has held that Sarbanes-Oxley whistleblower protection covers not only employees of the publicly-traded company, but also employees of that company’s contractors, subcontractors, and agents; The district court is the only one in the United States that has interpreted Sarbanes-Oxley whistleblower protection to be so broad; And, The First Circuit has accepted the case for interlocutory appeal, and will likely be the first appellate court to determine the proper coverage of Sarbanes-Oxley whistleblower protection.
