Businesses that secure a deferred prosecution agreement (DPA) from the Department of Justice should be highly motivated to honor the agreement’s terms and avoid any hint of further violations. However, it does not always work this way, and some companies continue to engage in the conduct that precipitated their legal trouble. These actions can prompt whistleblowers to report improper actions to the independent compliance monitors who are often appointed to oversee companies working under a DPA.
I am Steve Kardell and at my Dallas law firm, I represent whistleblowers in all types of workplace retaliation actions, seeking compensation from companies for punishing managers and other employees who properly report misconduct. These are the brave people who step up and want to do right thing because companies ARE going to do bad things.
Over 35 years of practice, I’ve appeared for whistleblowers in numerous Texas cases, including these:
I represent Mr. Yablon, Mr. Lozada and numerous other clients in retaliation claims.
Strict adherence to a DPA is necessary to protect yourself and the company you work for, even if some executives seek to take another path. No matter how just your cause might be, it’s important to understand the type of retaliation that whistleblowers can face. Whether the improper activity stems from the violation of a DPA or something else, you should retain an attorney who understands how to litigate these cases and deal with the pressure and harassment that often accompanies them.
I handle whistleblower actions, Sarbanes-Oxley litigation and other legal matters for Texas clients, helping them secure the justice and compensation they deserve.
