The Occupational Safety and Health

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has posted a compliance directive updating its Whistleblower Investigation Manual to cover two more statutes. The directive, DIS-0-0.9, adds two chapters and updates others to provide guidance on investigating whistleblower complaints under the Corporate and Criminal Fraud Accountability Act of 2002 (Title VIII of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002) and the Pipeline Safety Improvement Act of
2002. The manual is the primary vehicle for disseminating policy, procedures and information to whistleblower investigation staff.

For subscribers, we have posted a memo by Marty Lipton railing against the Breeden report as detailed in a blog yesterday by Mike O’Sullivan.
