In a recent VIDEO INTERVIEW, Darla Stuckey of the Society of Corporate Secretaries & Governance Professionals met with Steven J. Pearlman, co-head of Proskauer’s Whistleblower & Retaliation Group, to discuss the implications of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to extend whistleblower protection under the SOX whistleblower provision employees of a publicly traded company’s contractors and subcontractors.  The case is Lawson v. FMR LLC, 134 S. Ct. 1158 (2014).  In this interview, Pearlman identifies significant practical implications that are of particular interest to employment counsel, and compliance and HR professionals, and provides suggestions for public and private employers alike.
