On June 16, 2010, Seyfarth Shaw and SAI Global will present a complimentary webcast, "Tools and Techniques for Avoiding and Defending SOX Whistleblower Claims." The Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) tide has turned under the Obama Administration's new Secretary of Labor. High-value SOX claims that attract significant publicity are proliferating and the U.S. Department of Labor has recently issued substantial penalties and reinstatement awards against employers. Making this a "perfect storm," federal courts around the U.S. are also continuing to issue decisions favoring whistleblowers.
Join Seyfarth attorneys David Rowland and Steven Pearlman, and Alice Peterson, Chief Ethics Officer at SAI Global Compliance (Americas) in a discussion on measures to minimize the risk of SOX whistleblower claims and how employers can swiftly mount compelling defenses.
