What the FY13 NDAA’s New Whistleblower Protections Mean for Government Contractors
February 27, 2013
In recent years, Congress has enacted expansive protections for whistleblowers across virtually every major industry. The National Defense Authorization Act for FY2013 continues this trend by significantly enhancing whistleblower protections for government contractor employees, including extending coverage to:
- Employees of subcontractors
- Contracts and subcontracts with most civilian agencies
- Disclosures that are made to management officials of the contractor or subcontractor
- Reports of “abuses of authority” that undermine performance of a contract
Join Crowell & Moring's team of Government Contracts, White Collar & Regulatory Enforcement, and Labor & Employment attorneys for a special free webinar that examines this statute in the broader context of whistleblower protections and its implications for your business and your employees. We’ll also explore emerging best practices, compliance tips, traps for the unwary, areas of uncertainty, and common questions, such as: How should employee concerns be handled? At what point does an employee become a whistleblower? How must a whistleblower be treated?
On Wednesday, February 27, 2013, from 2:00 - 3:00 pm EST, please join us for this webinar.
