On June 30th, the National Whistleblowers Center will host a seminar for protecting environmental whistleblowers in the New Orleans area. The program, entitled Using the New Corporate Whistleblower Protections to Defend Environmental Whistleblowers, will be held at the Brown Foundation Center in Metairie, Louisiana from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm CST.

Distinguished NWC Executive Director Stephen M. Kohn and myself will be the faculty for this special training. At this event, we will discuss how to use the whistleblower provisions enacted in the Dodd-Frank Act last July to protect environmental whistleblowers who raise concerns about corporations. We will also lecture on other whistleblower laws that can be used to help environmental whistleblowers and how to advocate on their behalf.

For lawyers who wish to attend, the program is CLE-approved for Louisiana, Texas, and Alabama. It is CLE-pending in Mississippi.

Discounts are available for those who REGISTER early by June 17th. Call (202) 342-1903 or e-mail ek@whistleblowers.org for discount codes. The regular price for the seminar is $295 with early bird discounts and reduced fees for ARS members and whistleblowers.
