Be the first to learn about the SEC's newly issued regulations to the Dodd-Frank Act's whistleblower provisions, learn best practices for identifying and minimizing risks related to SOX and Dodd-Frank whistleblower claims, and gain insight into the effective methods of defending these claims where litigation is unavoidable.

The SEC is issuing rules regarding Dodd-Frank's bounty provisions in April. This comes on the heels of a recent proliferation in Sarbanes-Oxley whistleblower claims and the enactment of Dodd-Frank's daunting whistleblower bounty provisions.

To those ends, this program will:

  • Explain the newly issued SEC rules
  • Focus on the steps employers should take to step up compliance programs
  • Impart techniques for defending whistleblower claims where litigation is unavoidable

Upon completing this presentation, you will be able to:

  • Identify risks that are likely to lead to whistleblower claims
  • Develop procedures for fielding and investigating internal complaints
  • Take steps to minimize litigation risks and develop effective defenses in whistleblower litigation
