Whistleblower Payouts Under the New Provision
04 January, 2013 | (01 hr)
Join a panel of legal experts as they discuss the SEC’s new whistleblower “bounty” program, its impact on securities law enforcement, and steps companies should take to address whistleblower issues in an environment that has been impacted by this new program. In August 2012, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) announced the issuance of its first payment to a whistleblower under its new “bounty” program enacted pursuant to the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. The program is designed to increase the incentive for individuals to report fraud to the SEC.
This webcast addresses this new program, its impact on the SEC’s enforcement of securities laws, and how companies should refine their internal compliance programs and appropriately react to and deal with whistleblower complaints.
Audience: chief legal officers, legal counsels, directors of HR, chief ethics and compliance officers, chief sustainability officers, directors of corporate governance, heads of corporate governance, directors of audit committees, chief executive officers, chief operating officers
