Solid guidance for managing whistleblower policies in light of the new Dodd-Frank Act provisions

In July 2010, President Obama signed the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act that greatly expanded whistleblower bounties in connection with violations of federal securities laws, including the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. Discussing business protection strategies and best practices in dealing with whistleblowers, Whistleblowers will appeal to board members, executives, corporate compliance personnel, attorneys for whistleblowers and defense attorneys, as well as potential employee whistleblowers.

  • Case studies of GlaxoSmithKline, Pfizer and other high profile whistleblower incidences
  • Examines new Dodd-Frank incentives to whistleblowers
  • Recommends best practices for corporations in light of new whistleblowing incentives
  • Explores other federal and state statutory incentives to whistleblowing

Timely and comprehensive, Whistleblowers emphasizes the disincentives to whistleblowing, reviewing the academic studies of whistleblowers with the idea of developing best practices in working with whistleblowers.

From the Inside Flap:

"It becomes clearer than ever before that rules and regulations relating to whistleblowing are changing, becoming ever-pervasive and affecting a multitude of industries . . . Step by step, as a wise and learned guide, Mr. Lipman takes us through the legislation and institutional frameworks allowing whistleblowers a voice . . . I encourage you to begin this journey into whistleblowing law. From stories of outstanding whistleblowers, analysis of the Dodd-Frank reforms, and other whistleblowing statutes including those relating to the IRS, to best practices in dealing with whistleblowers, to providing whistleblowers with appropriate forms to submit information to the SEC, Fred Lipman leaves no stone unturned in his A-to-Z account of whistleblower law in the United States." –From the Foreword by Dr. Gaytri D. Kachroo, Esq., Contributor to No One Would Listen by Harry Markopolos

A timely and much-needed resource guiding businesses in managing their whistleblower policies in light of the new Dodd-Frank Act provisions, Whistleblowers: Incentives, Disincentives, and Protection Strategies shines a light on a topic that, until now, has been the pink elephant in the corporate boardroom. Critically examining current deterrents to whistleblowing, author Frederick Lipman reviews academic studies of whistleblowers and offers best practices for working with them.

Whistleblowers provides you—whether you are a board member, C-suite executive, corporate compliance officer, attorney for whistleblowers, defense attorney, or even a potential employee whistleblower—with essential business protection strategies, as well as a look at:

  • The dramatic expansion of whistleblower awards under Dodd-Frank

  • High-profile case studies, including the remarkable story of Cheryl Eckard andthe $96 million bounty under the False Claims Act

  • Disincentives to internal whistleblowers

  • Women as whistleblowers: Sherron Watkins, Cynthia Cooper, Coleen Rowley

  • Why your organization must adopt a robust whistleblower system

It's the tone set at the top of an organization that impacts its corporate culture. Unfortunately, too often senior management and boards in public and private companies insulate themselves from information, to their own detriment. Sending a powerful message to U.S. corporations to seriously overhaul their compliance measures, Whistleblowers is a necessary guide, serving as a beacon for whistleblowers and their managers in presenting complaints—and staying the course.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for Whistleblowers: Incentives, Disincentives, and Protection Strategies

"This unique book weaves the fascinating stories of individual whistleblowers with a call to make major improvements in the corporate compliance systems of all organizations. It is a must-read for executives and board members concerned about preventing future corporate scandals." –Howard L. Carver, public company audit committee member and retired partner, Ernst & Young LLP

"Federal and state governments have found that incentivizing integrity works, and they are embracing whistleblower¿¿programs to ferret out fraud. The good news, says Fred Lipman, is that corporate boards can implement their own whistleblower initiatives in order to get ahead of the curve. The trick, says Lipman, is for corporate boards to understand that they cannot obtain the information necessary to perform their fiduciary duties without creating incentives for internal whistleblowers." –Susan Strawn, President, Taxpayers Against Fraud

"As a national employee hotline provider, I fully endorse the idea contained in this excellent book of providing rewards for legitimate employee whistleblowers whose information benefits their organization. I believe that Fred Lipman's recommendation will increase both the usage and effectiveness of employee hotlines." –Andy Bronstein, President, Lighthouse Services, Inc.

"As with his prior writings, Mr. Lipman has created a thoughtful and comprehensive guide. Following the passing of the Dodd-Frank corporate governance reform bill, the whistleblower issue has taken on significant prominence. This is why this book's subject has such relevance." –Professor Charles M. Elson, Woolard Chair in Corporate Governance and Director of the Weinberg Center for Corporate Governance, University of Delaware
