Tune in tomorrow at 1:00pm EDT to Honesty Without Fear on Progressive Radio Network.
In the first half hour, Richard Renner interviews whistleblower Michael DeGuelle about his landmark case against S.C. Johnson & Son, Inc. Deguelle was fired after he blew the whistle on the company’s multi-million dollar tax fraud scheme. DeGuelle filed a RICO lawsuit claiming that his discharge was part of the 10-year tax fraud scheme. On December 15th, the Seventh Circuit held that the retaliation and the tax fraud are related, and DeGuelle's case can go forward. This is a precedent setting decision that opens the door to RICO remedies for whistleblowers. DeGuelle will share his story and explain why this decision is so important.
