Whistleblowers play a critical role in exposing corporate wrongdoing, fraudulent activities of corporate officers and directors, and disregard for law and public policy. When the economy tightens and competition intensifies, some businesses respond to that pressure by engaging in unfair and illegal business practices. These practices hurt corporate image and breach the public trust, while attacking the principle of good faith that underpins our entire system of commerce.
For these reasons Congress and the courts have been able to bring forth reforms, innovation and improvements in corporate structures through legislation and court litigation. It is through this kind of litigation and sanctions, that there has been greater transparency in business operations and better accountability and responsibility on the part of officers and directors, leading to less shareholder harm.
Congress recently added a powerful weapon to the investor protection arsenal in the form of enhanced protections and financial incentives for whistleblowers who report potential securities violations to the Securities and Exchange.
