Description: CCMC along with the US Chamber’s Institute for Legal Reform (ILR) submitted a letter to the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) regarding the study of whistleblower protections, required under Section 922 (d) of the Dodd Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, which implicates both of these areas of concern. The letter urges the SEC to solicit public comment from interested stakeholders and that the study include an examination of the interaction between the Dodd-Frank Act’s whistleblower provisions and the provisions of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act requiring companies to establish internal compliance programs.
