  • On January 22, 2013, Sens. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) and Chuck Grassley (R-IA) reintroduced legislation to the Senate Judiciary Committee that would extend whistleblower protections to employees who provide information to federal prosecutors in criminal antitrust investigations. If passed, the Criminal Antitrust Anti-Retaliation Act of 2013 (“Act”) would allow employees to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Labor about suspected retaliation for cooperating with the Department of Justice.
