"Today, employees of U.S. publicly-traded companies have a direct line to the SEC and may report practices they are uncomfortable with - whether inside the U.S. or abroad," said Kristin Rivera, partner, PwC. "With more rigorous U.S. ethics and compliance expectations in place, the dress rehearsal is over. Corporate America should take a fresh look at their structures and processes built for capturing complaints, and to ensure that allegations are being triaged and responded to appropriately."
PwC’s Rivera and Susan Muck, a securities litigation partner at Fenwick & West, are featured in the video, "When the Whistle Blows," a candid discussion about appropriate approaches to working with the SEC in the event of a whistle blowing investigation and key procedures for enlisting outside council.
Rivera also appears with Robb Adkins, partner at Winston and Strawn and former head of the Financial Fraud Enforcement Task Force at the Department of Justice, in "The New Paradigm of Dodd-Frank." In this video, Rivera and Adkins address what defines good corporate citizenship following the enactment of Dodd-Frank and the Consumer Protection Act.
