Compliance into the Weeds is the only weekly podcast which takes a deep dive into a compliance related topic, literally going into the weeds to more fully explore a subject. In this episode, Matt Kelly and I take a very deep dive into the recent SEC whistleblower award of $54MM to two separate individuals.

Some of the highlights from this podcast are:

  1. What does all this mean for the new proposed SEC whistleblower award basis revisions under consideration?
  2. Apparently there is flexibility in the standards for whistleblower awards.
  3. More information on requirement waivers would assist corporations and compliance practitioners.

We unpack of all these points and consider strategies going forward.
