A Focus on Multinationals: Adding Enterprise Value Through Global Whistleblower Protocols and Promoting Employer Values

November 12, 2021

Whistleblower activity—including new whistleblower laws—has increased in recent years; however, the number of internal whistleblower complaints has fallen. Internal whistleblower complaints are an opportunity for employers to correct misconduct, noncompliance, or other workplace problems as they happen. While this presents a challenge for employers, it is also an opportunity to reevaluate internal policies, training, and workplace culture. In this article, the second installment of a two-part series, Director of Global Corporate Compliance for Corning, Inc., Dan Christmas, along with Crowell’s Preston Pugh, Trina Fairley-Barlow, and Rachel Lesser, discuss strategies for maximizing the benefits and minimizing the risks of increased whistleblower activity. Part one of this series, available here, reviews the rise in whistleblower bounty laws and other laws designed to incentivize reporting.
