A whistleblower is not a whistleblower unless he reports suspected securities law violations to the SEC. And, if the whistleblower does not report suspected misconduct to the SEC, the whistleblower is not protected against retaliation by the employer. So said the Supreme Court on February 21, 2018, in Digital Realty Trust, Inc. v. Somers; the Supreme Court ruled that the Dodd-Frank Act’s whistleblower anti-retaliation provisions apply only to individuals who have reported possible securities law violations to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).
