Whistle-Blower Amendments Apply Retroactively
In the case of Leshinksy v. Telvent, U.S. District Judge, J. Paul Oetken, recently ruled that the whistle-blower amendments to the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, contained in the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010, apply retroactively. Those amendments extend the Sarbanes-Oxley Act’s whistle-blower provisions to subsidiaries of public companies.
Employees of subsidiaries may bring whistle-blower claims against the parent company for violations occurring before 2010. All claims, however, must still satisfy the statute of limitations.
