Program Materials

Description

Since Sarbanes-Oxley passed, several hundred whistleblower complaints have been filed - and the number of filings grows each year. However, a great deal remains unclear in how courts will apply the whistleblower provisions.

Whistleblower complaints have a negative effect on business, both operationally and in the public eye - and can be very expensive. As a result, companies must examine their compliance policies and procedures to ensure they do everything possible to prevent or mitigate whistleblower liability.

Listen as our authoritative panel discusses updates on regulatory and judicial decisions and examines elements of an effective whistleblower compliance program.
