The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has recently made its first whistleblower award to a compliance officer. The SEC has thus apparently given some encouragement to internal auditors and compliance officers to become whistleblowers. This panel will examine some of the issues regarding if and when such corporate employees, whose job it is to investigate and internally report corporate misconduct, should also be eligible for substantial whistleblower awards under the Dodd-Frank Act.
