Dodd-Frank Whistleblowers

The NWC is gearing up for our special seminar tomorrow in Washington, D.C. at the Willard Intercontinental Hotel, entitled “The NEW Corporate Whistleblower Protections and Rewards Provisions.” The entire NWC staff and I are looking forward to attending this open discussion on the newest whistleblower protection laws, which is also available via conference call.

We’re excited to offer you the chance to hear from a host of experts on the field. It is a rare opportunity to meet the Chief of the SEC Whistleblower Office, Sean McKessy, who will be conducting an hour-long session on how the new office will be upholding SEC’s recently adopted whistleblower rules. I am personally looking forward to hearing from Sean McKessy because the NWC’s legal staff and I were extensively involved in the Dodd-Frank rulemaking process. In addition, NWC Executive Director Stephen M. Kohn will present a session on important whistleblower laws. Other honored speakers include Donna Boehme (Principal of Compliance Strategies LLC) and Dean Zerbe (former Tax Counsel on the Senate Finance Committee and current Managing Director of Alliant Group).

It will be exciting for all to see how these new rules can provide greater employee protection and larger financial rewards. We will bring attendees up to speed on the latest whistleblower provisions and equip them with the legislative tools needed to effectively represent their clients. There is still time to register online by clicking here.

The NWC staff and I hope to see you tomorrow from 1:00 to 4:00 pm EST!
