Employment Law This Week (November 23, 2015) has released bonus footage of its interview with John F. Fullerton III, a Member of the Firm at Epstein Becker Green.

As Mr. Fullerton discusses, there is no clarity ahead over what constitutes a whistleblower. Marketing firm [email protected] has decided not to appeal a case to the U.S. Supreme Court that would have tested the definition of a “whistleblower” under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. At issue is whether an employee can be eligible for anti-retaliation protection under the Dodd-Frank Act even if he or she does not provide information of corporate wrongdoing directly to the SEC. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit says “no,” but the Second Circuit disagrees.
