The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) recently filed an amicus brief with the Sixth Circuit, defending whistleblowers and advocating that the court apply the Commission’s rulemaking while rendering its decision in an employer retaliation lawsuit.  The Commission’s rule resolved an ambiguity in the Dodd-Frank Act’s anti-retaliation provisions and expanded its whistleblower protections to employees who engage in any whistleblowing activities described in Section 21F(h)(1)(A) of the Securities Exchange Act, thereby recognizing congressional intent to protect broader forms of whistleblowing activity.
