Washington, D.C. partner Jason Schwartz is the co-author of Whistleblower Law: A Practitioner’s Guide, Release 14. The book highlights several whistleblower law issues, including the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Murray v. UBS Securities, LLC which resolved “the split among circuit courts regarding whether a whistleblower must prove that an employer acted with retaliatory intent to establish a claim under Section 806 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act,” as well as the proposed IRS Whistleblower Improvement Act of 2023 which includes “such changes as a de novo review of whistleblower award determinations instead of the existing abuse of discretion standard.” The book was published in March 2024.

Jason Schwartz is co-chair of the firm’s Labor & Employment Practice Group. His practice includes sensitive workplace investigations, high-profile trade secret and non-compete matters, wage-hour and discrimination class actions, Sarbanes-Oxley and other whistleblower protection claims, executive and other significant employment disputes, labor union controversies, and workplace safety litigation.
