SEC resists attempts to weaken new whistleblower program
By Phillips & Cohen LLP
Erika Kelton of Phillips and Cohen told the New York Times that employees almost always report their concerns about misconduct and fraud to managers and supervisors first. "It has only been after they have been retaliated against for doing so that they have come to us.?
Ms. Kelton noted that the SEC resisted intense pressure from corporate interest groups to weaken the rules. "By establishing incentives for people to report fraud concerns internally before going to the SEC -- but not making such reporting mandatory -- the SEC has struck a balance that still will encourage whistleblowers."
