    Outside accountants and lawyers who reveal fraud and wrongdoing at companies are protected just as employees, the Supreme Court rules. "They are like most employees," said Eric Schnapper, a University of Washington law professor who represented the workers before the Supreme Court. "If they saw something wrong, they wanted to fix it. And they thought the higher-ups should know about it."
  • - Reuters The U.S. Supreme Court handed a victory to employers by ruling that a group of unionized steel workers does not have to be paid for the time they spend "donning and doffing" safety gear before and after their shifts.
