Leeson Educates HR Professionals on Whistleblower and Retaliation Claims at 2014 Virginia SHRM Conference
In each of the last four years, employment retaliation claims have comprised the largest number of charges filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). In addition, the federal government continues its proactive efforts to inform employees of their rights to file various whistleblower claims against their employers—see www.whistleblowers.gov. At the 2014 Virginia State SHRM Conference held at The Homestead resort in late April 2014, Gentry Locke partner Todd Leeson presented two sessions entitled “Whistleblower and Retaliation Claims: Legal Risks and Strategic Solutions for Employers.” Todd provided Virginia HR professionals with insights and recommendations to help them protect their organizations from liability.
