Fatino Published Article About Credit Union Director's Duties
Member attorney John F. Fatino and J.D. candidate Anna Mallen were recently published in the Credit Union Journal. Their article, "Board of Directors Obligation to Protect Credit Union Whistleblowers," discussed the duty of care for the directors of credit unions.
The authors maintain that directors have a duty of care to make certain that policies and procedures are in place to protect the credit union and comply with federal and state law. This includes an obligation to understand the special protections afforded whistleblowers under federal law. The article also establishes the need for appropriate documentation of employee performance (or the lack thereof) before the whistleblower claim is asserted.
