    New Jersey’s whistleblower act (CEPA) is an ever-expanding law, and there have been some significant recent developments, including two expected NJ Supreme Court opinions.  Even more generally, whistleblower protections across the board continue to gain traction in the wake of corporate scandals, including False Claims Act and Qui Tam claims.

    During this educational seminar the goal is to explain CEPA and its requirements, and provide participants with compliance and litigation defense strategy tips. Attendees will gain insight into CEPA, and understand what constitutes protected activity.

    Furthermore, this presentation is designed to update HR professionals on specific requirements of the law, including notice and posting requirements, and policy implementation concerning same. Attendees will also learn how CEPA interacts with other whistleblowing laws (i.e., Sarbanes-Oxley, Dodd-Frank, False Claims Act, Qui Tam actions).
