Helping Protect Employees Who Report Corporate Wrongdoing
The much-publicized failures of major corporations such as Enron and WorldCom in the early 2000s led to passage of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX). Among other provisions, this act is designed to protect employees who expose corporate fraud or Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) violations. At Sterling Employment Law, our Detroit Sarbanes-Oxley Act attorneys help to ensure that employees receive the full protection they are entitled to under the law.
If you are an employee who has experienced retaliation for reporting corporate wrongdoing or are afraid that your employer will unlawfully take action against you, we can help. Call 248-633-8916 to schedule an appointment to discuss your situation.
Whistleblower Protection Under Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX)
The Sarbanes-Oxley Act provides a broad definition for who can expect to receive whistleblower protections. In general, the act will protect employees who report unlawful corporate activity to supervisors, management and law enforcement agencies. Protections are also put in place for employees who participate in any SEC proceedings or are otherwise involved in federal investigations concerning corporate fraud and wrongdoing.
Protection means that employees should not be subject to retaliation for reporting corporate misdeeds. Retaliation may include demotions, failure to promote or termination. The legal team at Sterling Employment Law has extensive experience handling employment law claims. Our Michigan whistleblower attorneys can help employees seek remedies available under Sarbanes-Oxley, including compensation for lost wages and other damages, reinstatement and attorney fees. We will work tirelessly to ensure that employees are protected according to law.
