Preparing for COVID-19 Whistleblower Claims Against Businesses Receiving CARES Act Funds
The COVID-19 pandemic, downturn in the economy including massive layoffs, and the federal aid and stimulus under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) have created the perfect storm for whistleblower claims in the near future. In this webinar, attorneys from Sheppard Mullin will discuss how the current economy and government enforcement developments have primed whistleblowers to file claims against businesses receiving CARES Act funds. They will also discuss potential liabilities resulting from whistleblower claims and what businesses should do now to protect themselves.
Key topics to be discussed:
- Current factors affecting potential whistleblower claims
- Legal bases for whistleblower actions
- Potential liability stemming from whistleblower claims
- Best practices to prepare for and respond to whistleblowers
