Whistleblower Incentives In Financial Reform Bill | DC Metro Area Personal Injury Law Blog

Posted by: Salvatore J. Zambri, founding partner

I blogged recently about legislation  introduced to protect whistleblowers.  The Financial Times (8/9, Eaglesham, Masters) reports that the Dodd-Frank financial reform bill includes new whistleblowing incentives that could mean multimillion dollar rewards for informants and could lead to an increase in allegations against US companies and banks.  The purpose behind the bill is to encourage workers to come forward to stop companies from engaging in unethical, dangerous behavior that threatens consumer and patient safety, which, in teh end, also adversely impact our economy and communities.

I applaud the legislation, and I encourage workers to have the courage to come forward and speak out against corporate misdeeds.

My firm accepts whistleblower cases.  We work to ensure that justice is obtained for  the whistleblower and for all consumers.

Do you have any questions about this post?
