Compliance into the Weeds

Proposed SEC Whistleblower Reform

av Compliance into the Weeds | Publicerades 10/23/2019

Compliance into the Weeds is the only weekly podcast which takes a deep dive into a compliance related topic, literally going into the weeds to more fully explore a subject. In this episode, Matt Kelly and I go into the weeds to explore the SEC’s proposed changes to its whistleblower program.  Some of the highlights include: The reforms were originally announced 18 moths ago. Why is the SEC just now getting to public discussion? What if anything will be the cap on high end awards? Conversely, will the expansion of low-end awards beget better whistleblower tips? Why would the SEC want to reduce award levels at the high end? What is the constituency for this position? Why (or why not) should a whistleblower tip be in writing? Why was the SEC Open Meeting to discuss these reforms postponed until November? Will the meeting be postponed again? Who benefits from a postponement?
