A former senior employee of a global consulting firm who was stationed in Paris can sue for damages under the whistleblower protection provision of a U.S. law, a New York federal judge has ruled. Rosemary O'Mahony claimed that Accenture demoted her after she accused it of withholding more than $3 million it owed in French social security payments. O'Mahony's attorney said the decision was significant because it was the first to apply Sarbanes-Oxley whistleblower protections to an employee working overseas.
