Summary: 2014 was a banner year for the SEC’s whistleblower program, with more awards doled out this fiscal year than in the previous two years combined and the largest payout to date.

In the following article of interest for in-house counsel involved in labor & employment issues or litigation and corporate investigations, we take a look at how effectively coordinated proactive programs and emerging strategies can significantly reduce or mitigate the possibility that your company will be subject to negative publicity—or become a statistic in next year’s SEC whistleblower report.
