Gregory Keating, Member of the Firm, will co-present "Recent Developments Under USERRA and the Future of Sarbanes-Oxley Under the Biden Administration" at the 2021 Federal Labor Standards Legislation (FLSL) Committee Midwinter Meeting, which runs from February 18 to 19, hosted by the American Bar Association's (ABA) Labor and Employment Law Section.

The panel will review judicial developments applying USERRA as well as provide an update on Department of Labor investigations and Department of Justice enforcement trends.

The panel will also explore the changes that can be expected for Sarbanes-Oxley and Dodd-Frank whistleblower protections and the SEC whistleblower program. While more than 280 federal judges received lifetime appointments during the Trump Administration, the Biden Administration will have the power to appoint at least three, and as many as five, members of the DOL’s Administrative Review Board (ARB) early during his term. While the ARB’s decisions are not binding on federal courts, they are highly influential, and the expansion or contraction of protections by the ARB will have a significant impact on the future of SOX. An administration’s enforcement priorities and staffing of OSHA and other enforcement agencies can also significantly impact the breadth of SOX employee protections.
