SEC Whistleblower Program
News & Insights
Law.com released an article by Dean Seal on Oct. 28, 2020 reporting on the Securities Enforcement Forum 2020, emphasizing a message that a panel including Jordan Thomas had imparted. As the title suggests, the message was that companies should be grateful and honor any whistleblowers who report wrongdoing on a company’s part.
As set forth in the report, fellow panelist and whistleblower attorney Lorin Reisner strongly advocated for treating whistleblowers with “respect and care and thoughtfulness,” particularly since there are “enormous benefits” for doing so. Jordan agreed and elaborated that companies that don’t respond appropriately may face harsher consequences when whistleblowers take their concerns elsewhere.
