David Morrison Quoted in Compliance Week Magazine

February 27, 2018

David Morrison, a principal in the firm's Labor & Employment group, was quoted recently in an article in Compliance Week Magazine. The article, entitled "Court ruling limits scope of SEC whistleblower reporting" focuses on the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that narrows down the definition of employees classified as "whistleblowers" and if they are protected by anti-retaliation measures of the Dodd-Frank Act. The ruling places limitations on the Securities and Exchange Commission's whistleblower program, requiring reporting to the Commissions before receiving its protections and incentives.

When regulations “conflict with the express language in the statute, the statute prevails. When a company is faced with a lawsuit, it should make sure that the regulation does not go beyond the statute’s explicit language,” Morrison says. “If it does, employers should not hesitate to bring the issue to the Court’s attention to defeat the claim.”
