Sarbarnes-Oxley (SOX) was enacted in 2002 in the wake of the explosion of corporate and accounting scandals, such as those involving Enron, WorldCom, and Arthur Anderson. SOX applies to employees of publicly traded companies and prohibits employers from retaliating against employees who complain about or disclose corporate fraud. Section 806 of SOX generally protects employees who expose shareholder fraud, bank fraud, mail fraud, wire fraud, radio or TV fraud, securities fraud, or any violation of any Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) rule or regulation. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is the agency that enforces Section 806. Employees must file their claims with the OSHA within 180 days of the date of the adverse employment action. The OSHA and the Department of Labor will investigate the complaint and either affirm or reject it. The OSHA has a high rejection rate and employees who get turned away by the OSHA should in most cases proceed to court. Ms. Smith routinely advises executive and non-executive level employees of public companies regarding SOX, and she represents clients who experience retaliation as a result of blowing-the-whistle on SOX violations. If you have information about SOX violations by a publicly held company, or if you feel you have been retaliated against for reporting SOX violations CONTACT US to schedule a consultation with Ms. Smith to discuss your legal rights and potential representation.
