Understanding Corporate Whistleblower Protections and Challenges (Webinar Archive)


Understanding Corporate Whistleblower Protections

CPE Credit: 2
Course Level: Overview
Prerequisite: None


In the wake of Enron, WorldCom, Tyco and several other major financial scandals, the U.S. Congress enacted the Public Company Accounting Report and Investor Protection Act of 2002 (SOX). SOX created unprecedented legal protections for corporate whistleblowers to deal with the “corporate code of silence” by encouraging individuals to report questionable accounting and auditing matters.

This course recounts significant events involving the landmark case of Menendez v. Halliburton in order to raise awareness regarding the protections and potential outcomes of decisions individuals may make regarding the reporting of questionable accounting practices.

You Will Learn How To:

Identify the key SOX whistleblower protection provisions

Recognize the challenges and unfulfilled expectations of SOX

Identify recent positive developments in corporate whistleblower protections
