Weil’s Allan Dinkoff attended the 2011 American Employment Law Council Annual Conference in Ojai last week and presented a paper titled “Corporate Compliance Programs After Dodd-Frank”. Allan’s paper explores how Dodd-Frank and its evolving rulemaking process has heightened employment and corporate governance challenges. He writes:
“What Dodd-Frank does is create powerful incentives for employees to go directly to the [Securities and Exchange] Commission about violations of any federal securities laws, including the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. This puts a significant premium on having a broad, truly effective compliance program and a real culture of compliance.”
The paper provides excellent perspective for corporate counsel in answering the challenge presented by evolving regulation in this area.
