About This Class:

This one-hour course will survey the principles underlying whistleblower law and the various components of that law. It starts by asking what is a whistleblower and by distinguishing whistleblowing from spying, stealing, and mere gossiping. There will be a review of the history of the competing elements of the law: whistleblower protection statutes (both federal and state-based, affecting both private and government employees); and the competing statutes which are designed to protect secrets and to impose penalties on people who betray those secrets. Additionally, the course will examine how First Amendment protections play into the analysis.


About the Speaker:

Rafael Chodos has been an attorney in private practice in Los Angeles for over 37 years. He is the author of The Law of Fiduciary Duties (2000, Blackthorne Legal Press).

    It’s been a long time since finding an article here that has so much accompanying detail-info as to make attending the seminar worth while. Even reading the linked material would be a great help to most anyone finding themselves, or representing another, in such a predicament as to require standing up among others less inclined.
