Learn how to use the new corporate whistleblower laws and regulations to effectively represent employees, combat fraud, and qualify for large whistleblower rewards. The seminar will explain the new anti-retaliation rules governing corporate employees and the financial reward provisions that require the SEC to pay large financial awards to qualified whistleblowers. Gain insight into how whistleblower protection laws can be integrated into your law practice as powerful legal tools for maximizing your client's ability to have their case heard before a jury and obtain entitlement to large monetary rewards.
Hear from Stephen M. Kohn, America's leading whistleblower attorney, about his extensive involvement in the Dodd-Frank rulemaking process. On May 25th, the SEC adopted whistleblower rules that fundamentally changed and enhanced the right of employees to obtain legal protection and large financial rewards. The NWC and its legal staff were extensively involved in this process. Many of the NWC's proposals were adopted by the Commission, and the Final Rules cited NWC's formal comments forty-four times. The new regulations will prove an invaluable asset in the representation of corporate whistleblowers.
