Sarbanes-Oxley Corporate Whistleblower Protection Law

Speaker 1:
It seemed to come out of the blue. When David received a surprise visit from his boss, his stomach sank. He knew this couldn't be good, and he was right. After some small talk to allow the office staff to punch out for the end of the week, David was let go. No notice, no real explanation, except something about downsizing and David being a poor fit for the company. Yet no one else was being laid off, and David had a consistent record of strong performance.


David wasn't even given time to clear out his office or say goodbye to colleagues. He was told that they'd clean out his desk and leave his personal effects at the front desk for him to pick up at a later time. He managed to grab the picture he kept on his desk on his way out the door. It was the picture that always kept him going during difficult times, and there had been plenty of those as of late. It was that picture of his children that had always led him to remain honest and true to his values at work.


Lately, David was under pressure at work to manipulate earnings to meet targets that would enable management to get large bonuses. David knew that reporting false earnings to the SCC and shareholders violates SCC rules and harms shareholders. Therefore, he refused to acquiesce in his employer's earnings management scheme.


As a result, management became very hostile to him. He'd been denied a promotion that was rightfully his and he'd suffered alienation and isolation from his senior management and peers who were eager to get large bonuses from this earnings management scheme. He never thought it would come to him losing his job, but he stood his ground and now needed someone to help protect him and his rights.


Despite his loyal service to the company, he found himself out of work and worried about how he would support his family. That's when he turned to the Zuckerman Law Firm, a Washington D.C. firm that represents whistleblowers nationwide and has substantial experience litigating Sarbanes-Oxley whistleblower claims. David called them immediately and setup a consultation.


The firm explained to David his legal rights and options and crafted a strategy for David to utilize whistleblower laws to obtain a wide range of remedies, including lost wages, emotional distress damages, and damages for harm to reputation. David also learned from the firm that some whistleblowers laws may provide substantial rewards to whistleblowers. Thanks to the Zuckerman Law Firm, David is well on his way to seeking relief for the retaliation that he suffered.


If you or someone you know has been a victim of whistleblower retaliation, don't delay. Many whistleblower retaliation laws have short statutes of limitations. Contact Zuckerman Law to learn about your rights. Call 202-262-8959 or visit zuckermanlaw.com.
