The Employment Law Group® Managing Principal Named Top Leader in Washington DC Employment Law

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - Jul 21, 2011) - The Employment Law Group® is pleased to announce that Managing Principal Scott Oswald has been named one of the top ten Washington DC employment law leaders. The Employment Law Group® is an elite law firm that represents the rights of whistleblowers and other employees who have been victimized by those who abuse positions of authority. The firm has recovered over $85 million for its clients. Factors considered in naming a top leader in employment law include reputation, experience, client volume, and degree of focus.

The attorneys at The Employment Law Group® fight to ensure the rights of those who expose fraud, whether at a corporation or government agency, are upheld. For instance, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) prohibits employers from retaliating against whistleblowers in a manner that would dissuade whistleblowers from coming forward, such as through wrongful termination or discrimination. Employees who are threatened, harassed, or terminated as a result of exposing fraud should seek the representation of an experienced trial attorney. The Employment Law Group® has fought on behalf of SOX whistleblowers to establish several whistleblower-friendly precedents, including: Kalkunte v. DVI, Leznik v. Nektar, Stone v. IL, and Feldman v. LEA.

The firm is headquartered in Washington, DC, but has additional offices in Los Angeles, CA, San Francisco, CA, and Largo, MD. In addition to representing whistleblowers, the firm also represents clients in other employment matters, including claims of fraud, harassment, discrimination, unpaid overtime, and executive compensation.
