The recently enacted Criminal Antitrust Anti-Retaliation Act provides new federal protections to whistleblowers who report violations of antitrust laws. Join us as we review the implications of the new law on a company’s antitrust compliance efforts, the life of a whistleblower case when reported to the US Department of Labor (DOL) and DOJ, the litigation issues that may arise following a whistleblower complaint, and the impact of the new law on the DOJ Leniency Program’s protections.

We will also consider what happens if the whistleblower complaint is reported to DOL and DOJ without company knowledge or input. Specific steps companies can take following the new law will be highlighted.
