The US Senate passed the Criminal Antitrust Anti-Retaliation Act (CAARA) on July 22, 2015. CAAR provides anti retaliation protection to whistleblowers (covered individuals) who give information to their employer or to the federal government concerning criminal violations of antitrust laws. CAARA prohibits an employer from retaliating against a covered individual who provides information relating to “any violation of, or any act or omission the covered individual reasonably believes to be a violation of, the antitrust laws.”The persons covered under this Act are employees, contractors, subcontractors, or agents of an employer. The term “employer” includes “person, or any officer, employee, contractor, subcontractor or agent of such person.” Moreover, “federal government” has been defined in this Act to include any Federal regulatory or law enforcement agency, as well as any member of Congress.
