Whistleblower Law and Practice – 2022 and Beyond (On-Demand)

$189.00

This course is based on nearly 40 years of experience in whistleblower law by Herb Rubenstein, a member of the DC, MD, and VA Bars. In addition, this course includes a significant amount of information contained in the book, The New Whistleblower’s Handbook, by Stephen Martin Kohn, a practitioner and thought leader in the field. Representation of whistleblowers has changed in the past decade with over 55 Federal Laws and numerous State Laws that both protect whistleblowers from retaliation and provide very lucrative incentives for whistleblowers and their attorneys. That being said, the field of whistleblower representation is a minefield where one mistake can destroy your case and be devastating to the career of the whistleblower. This area of the law is procedure-driven, requires “lawyering up” at the outset of a person thinking about being a whistleblower and includes some laws with a draconian 30-day statute of limitations. Awards of two hundred million dollars have been given recently to whistleblowers by the Commodities Futures Trading Commission and over one hundred million by the Securities and Exchange Commission. This course is both practical and insightful in terms of describing key steps to representing whistleblowers and how to build a great legal practice in this area. Whistleblower law will surely grow by leaps and bounds over the next decade and beyond.
