Seyfarth Shaw’s Whistleblower Team is pleased to announce the launch of Workplace Whistleblower, a 10-part microblog series that will offer perspectives on common whistleblower situations faced by HR and in-house legal departments.

With the steady rise in whistleblower claims and related liability, we have seen a rapid increase of calls from clients seeking practical advice for dealing with potential whistleblower situations.  In recognition of the increasing need for such practical advice, we are starting a conversation with our clients and friends over what to consider when faced with different whistleblower situations in the workplace.

On a regular basis through June and July, Workplace Whistleblower will discuss thought-provoking hypothetical issues that commonly arise in whistleblower situations.

This series is available through subscription and on our website.  Our first post last week covered employee use of recording devices.  Our second, posted today, covers employee refusals to work.  Join the converation!
