Lawson v. FMR LLC: Sarbanes-Oxley’s Whistleblower Protections Extend to Employees of Contractors of Public Companies

I wanted to mention this case from the Supreme Court of the United States. In Lawson v. FMR LLC, ___ U.S. ___ (3/4/14) the Supreme Court held that the whistleblower protections of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (18 U. S. C. §1514A(a)) extend not only to employees of public companies, but also to employees of contractors and subcontractors of public companies.

The opinion is available here.
