Whistleblower's Claim Dismissed for Lack of Subjective Belief


The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit upheld the U.S. Department of Labor’s review of a summary dismissal of a whistleblower complaint filed by petitioner Michael Gale, the Chief Operations Officer and a director of World Securities Group (WSG), the affiliated broker-dealer of World Financial Group (WFG). Gale’s complaint alleges that he was discharged because he (1) provided information and opposed decisions made by company officers relating to waste and misuse of corporate monies that resulted in loss of shareholder equity and (2) raised concerns that the operation of WSG by WFG violated certain Securities and Exchange Commission rules and regulations.
