U.S. Supreme Court Expands Whistleblower Protections

(Washington, DC) -- The U.S. Supreme Court is expanding protections for whistleblowers. The justices ruled today that those protections extend not only to publicly traded companies, but also to their subcontractors. That includes law firms and accounting firms. The court made the ruling as it considered the case of two whistleblowers who claimed they suffered retaliation after highlighting what they thought were improper practices at the parent company of Fidelity Investments.
