Satisfactory Essays

The act (Sarbanes-Oxley Act) is a law formed to stop corporate scam. Through it, companies are banned from discriminating any staff who lawfully helps in giving information in conduct researches that the workers sensibly considers to be a violation of National Securities Laws (Eaton, 2007). In the case above, it addressed air pollution, emissions and cars. The act would not apply to the two engineers as whistleblowers since the law only protects the corporation’s staffs that feel they are being hit back against by their boss after perceiving an infringement of National Securities Laws. As a result, the two are safe. Their whistleblowing case is unique since they were not working for any Fortune 500 Company. They are simply university researchers.
