Employment Law This Week (Episode 62: Week of March 6, 2017) has released bonus footage of its interview with Jason Kaufman, an Associate at Epstein Becker Green.
As Mr. Kaufman discusses, a Dodd-Frank whistleblower case was recently dismissed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. The court granted the employer’s summary judgment motion, ruling that two executives could not causally connect their termination to what the judge found to be vague complaints about the company's internal controls. The judge noted that the three months between the executives’ activity and their termination was too long to be considered connected, without any corroborating evidence.
