Causal Nexus Between Protected Activity And Job Terminations Is Protected By INA's Whistleblower Provision
In the Matter of Rudranath Talukdar and Harjinder K. Virdee, No. 2002-LCA-25 (OALJ, Apr. 12, 2004), the Office of Administrative Law Judges said that Employees were protected by the INA's whistleblower provision because they showed a causal nexus between their protected activity in the union and their terminations, which occurred within two months of the Wage and Hour Division's determination that Employer had violated the INA. The OALJ also said that imposition of civil penalties and debarrment from the H-1B program were inappropriate remedies against a publicly funded veteran's medical center which needs H-1B physicians to provide care for its patients.
