The New Whistleblower Regime Under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act

With government enforcement of securities and securities-related laws becoming increasingly aggressive, the Dodd-Frank Act adds another weapon to these stepped-up efforts, including a new whistleblower regime with new and increased employment protections as well as substantial financial bounties for whistleblowers. Please join Mayer Brown partners Anthony Alexis and Marcia E. Goodman as they address key issues in the Act that affect public companies and their subsidiaries, including:

  • Financial rewards for qualifying whistleblowers who provide original information relating to securities law violations to the SEC;
  • New anti-retaliation protections for whistleblowers and the expansion of whistleblower protections under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act;
  • Internal compliance and policies to promote early detection of potential issues to avoid whistleblower disclosures and prevent possible retaliation claims under the new regime.
