Following is an excerpt:

The Third Circuit’s opinion doesn’t answer the question of retroactivity but rather delves into which handbook provision to apply, Epstein Becker Green attorney John F. Fullerton said.

“The statute is silent on whether it should be applied retroactively,” Fullerton said of the Dodd-Frank amendment to whistleblower retaliation claims. “This is why it was so important in the Citigroup case to determine if it was the 2009 or 2011 handbook agreement that applied.”
