Washington, DC (PRWEB) May 01, 2013
The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013 (“FY2013 NDAA”) made several key changes to whistleblower protections applicable to government contractors. These expansions will have immediate and significant effects on the way that contractors must operate, both before and after a whistleblower’s complaint is lodged. It is essential that contractors understand the scope of these changes and the broader compliance landscape that includes several other laws and regulations focused on establishing protections for whistleblowers.
The FY2013 NDAA’s provisions give rise to legal issues pertaining to government contracting and employment law. In this webinar, attorneys from each of these groups will provide you with the key takeaways of these new whistleblower protections and how they will affect your business.
This 90-minute webinar entitled "New NDAA Whistleblower Protections: What they Mean for Government Contractors" is scheduled for Wednesday, May 08, 2013 at 1PM Eastern. To register, follow this link:
