O’Melveny’s deNeve Authors Article for Law360 on Dodd-Frank Whistleblower Protection

October 04, 2012

O’Melveny & Myer’s LLP Los Angeles counsel Jorge deNeve authored the October 3, 2012, Law360 article “Scope of Dodd-Frank Whistleblower Protection Is Expanding.” In the article, DeNeve discusses the ramifications of two recent federal district court decisions that allow whistleblower retaliation claims under Dodd-Frank Act to proceed.

  

DeNeve explains how Dodd-Frank provides financial awards to whistleblowers while curtailing any employer retaliation and provides analysis of the two decisions which will likely allow a more expansive definition of who qualifies as whistleblower.
