SEC whistleblower attorney Jason Zuckerman will speak at a BNA Bloomberg webinar on September 24, 2018 titled New Developments in the SEC and CFTC Whistleblower Programs: Record Year for Awards and Narrowed Whistleblower Protection. To register, click here. The panelists at this webinar are:

This year the SEC and CFTC have issued record whistleblower awards and are experiencing an increase in whistleblower disclosures. And in 2018, the Supreme Court issued an opinion construing the Dodd-Frank Act’s anti-retaliation provision that will likely have a significant impact on corporate compliance programs. In addition, the SEC recently issued proposed amendments to the rules governing its whistleblower program. Join this webinar to hear from the Directors of the SEC and CFTC whistleblower offices and leading practitioners about new developments in whistleblower incentives and protections.
