New laws and recent cases have changed the breadth of protections against whistleblower retaliation. In recent years, the U.S. Supreme Court has actively expanded retaliation protections, and whistleblower retaliation claims now represent the number one claim filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). More than 40 federal laws--and many more at the state level--extend protections to employees who report suspected violations of the law. Highly-publicized whistleblowing protections and benefits, such as those available under Dodd-Frank's controversial bounty hunter program, have created an increased need for organizations to educate their employees and managers about the internal mechanisms available for resolving complaints--as well as the need for whistleblower training and retaliation training.

The manager version is specifically designed to help managers learn how to spot issues and respond properly to complaints, avoid behaviors that create an increased risk of retaliation claims and help protect the organization's culture and reputation. Learners explore each organization's specific reporting procedures, the obligation to speak up and the rules against retaliation.
