SEC Whistleblower Provisions
January 18, 2011
The comment letter indicates that certain provisions could make for an effective whistleblower program, like the one suggested by the SEC. These provisions include:
- "establish[ing] the proper process to sort out meritorious claims;"
- "recogniz[ing] the importance of honoring the internal compliance and reporting process in balancing the whistleblower incentives so as not to override what is a core corporate function;" and
- "offer[ing] legitimate whistleblower protection to those with the courage to step forward."
