Sarbanes-Oxley - One Company's Approach
by Michael Fox
A known "whistle blower", but also an employee you feel strongly should be terminated, what do you do in face of certain civil charges, and possible even criminal ones? Check the BizJournals story for how IDX Systems Corp. is handling it. Their approach is to seek a declaratory judgment that they can terminate Dr. Mauricio Leo who they claim is a "prickly malcontent". 10 days after their declaratory judgment was filed Leon filed a charge with the DOL under Sarbanes-Oxley. The jurisdictional fight alone on this one should be interesting.
