Corporate whistleblowers may not always grab the biggest headlines, but the space is seeing extensive activity — and presenting complicated challenges for lawyers and other corporate advisors.
Last month, the SEC awarded $6 million to five whistleblowers, and earlier this year, the agency released proposed changes to two whistleblower program rules.
To provide a deeper understanding of trends and risks, PLI is offering a half-day program, Corporate Whistleblowing in 2022, which will provide essential insights on recent developments shaping the current risk landscape, both during the pandemic and emerging from it.
The expert panel will include leading whistleblower law practitioners as well as current and former regulators.
In the session, you’ll gain in-depth perspectives on recent regulatory and legal developments, including the current and future direction of the federal whistleblower bounty and protection programs, what regulatory enforcement developments to expect in the coming year, best practices in responding to whistleblower allegations, and the challenges of and practical strategies for prosecuting, defending, and managing whistleblower claims.
Attendees will learn more about:
- The protections and incentives available to corporate whistleblowers
- The current priorities and agendas of the SEC, CFTC, and Department of Labor whistleblower programs, including recent amendments to the SEC’s program
- The trends and issues recently facing the private plaintiffs’ whistleblower bar
- The latest administrative and case law relating to whistleblowing
