Experts See Impact of SEC Whistleblower Provisions
The whistleblower provisions in the Dodd-Frank Act raise a host of new questions for business leaders.
- Will government rewards for blowing the whistle ruin employee motivation to report misconduct to their employer?
- How can companies encourage employees to report misconduct internally?
- Will hotlines still be enough?
On May 25, 2011, the SEC adopted the final Whistleblower Rules that will go into effect August 12, 2011. To help you understand the new provisions, ERC put together a collection of articles to help your organization.
