The Department of Labor has begun to take steps to implement Sarbanes-Oxley. The Secretary of Labor has issued an order designating OSHA as the agency responsible for handling claims under the civil Whistleblower Act created by Sarbanes-Oxley. The DOL has also published interim regulations for handling of notices and other procedures for the trading blackouts on 401(k)'s. The regulations were published in the Federal Register of 10/21/02.
I will be talking about these developments as well as the law itself at the UH CLE program Employer-Side Employment Law on December 5-6 in Houston and repeated in Dallas on December 12-13.
