Whistle Blowing in Private / Public Industry #2

If an employee (whistle blower) provides information about another employee's (executive management)embezzlement activities and that private employer treats the whistle blower differently than other employees during promotions and bonus payouts, would that be considered retaliation and have merits for a case?
Would it be different if it was a public traded company with over 50 employees where there is SOX oversight and if there was an investigation by the US Attorney's office?

It would depend on who you told and under what circumstances to see if you may qualify as a "whistleblower" under Sarbanes Oxley. Seek out a competent attorney knowledgeable regarding Sarbanes Oxley.
