Fred Rivera and Javier Garcia authored an article published by ABA's Employment & Labor Relations Law Newsletter entitled "Increased Funding, Revamped SEC Procedures, and Disgruntled Workforce Create Perfect Storm," covering an anticipated increase in employee whistleblower matters, whistleblower incentives included in the Stimulus Package and recent SEC announcements about beefing up its whistleblower and tips review. In the article, Rivera and Garcia suggest that the economic downturn has resulted in increased vigilance over the financial system and on whistleblowers in the corporate and government compliance environment.
