On July 21, 2010, Congress enacted the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the Dodd-Frank Act.) Corporate whistleblowing was forever changed. The new implementing regulations of Section 21F of the Act, which offer monetary rewards to those who turn lawbreakers in to the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Commodities Futures Trading Commission, took effect August 12, 2011. A whistleblower can now get as much as 30 percent of monetary damages from a successful enforcement case.

There are, however, proactive measures your company can take to protect itself in this "brave new world." This session will cover:

  • Key points of the Dodd-Frank Act's whistleblower provisions
  • The bounty program;
  • Anti-retaliation provisions;
  • Current case law developments;
  • Practical considerations to design an effective, proactive internal whistleblower program;
  • Methods to respond to whistleblower complaints when received;
  • Attorney-client privilege issues; and
  • The burdens and benefits of self-reporting

Continuing Education Credit:
This program has been submitted to the HR Certification Institute for review. CLE credit applied for. Program and breakfast are complimentary. Space is limited to the first 50 registrants for this event.
