The Senate Judiciary Committee approved a bill that would extend whistleblower protections to employees who give federal prosecutors information in a criminal antitrust investigation.  Criminal Antitrust Anti-Retaliation Act of 2013, S. 42, 113th Cong.(2013).  The proposed law would allow an employee to file a complaint with the Department of Labor for suspected retaliation against an employee cooperating with the Department of Justice.  The proposed law follows the Government Accountability Office’s July 2011 recommendation that Congress amend the Antitrust Criminal Penalties Enforcement and Reform Act (“ACPERA”) by adding a civil remedy for those whistleblowers who experience retaliation for tipping off the DOJ to an antitrust violation.  If the bill passes, it would be known as the Criminal Antitrust Anti-Retaliation Act.
