Lex Urban comments on a whistleblower award recently received by an employee with compliance-related job responsibilities at a company - only the third time in eight years that an award has gone to an individual with compliance or internal audit duties.
An excerpt from “Listen Up: Company Ignored Compliance Officer Who's Now $450K Richer as Whistleblower,” Corporate Counsel, March 31, 2020:
Lex Urban, special counsel at Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft wrote in a blog that the hardship suggests company retaliation. “The whistleblower in this case suffered some form of retaliation, which should be a key focus of any company’s whistleblower policies as that alone can be the basis of an enforcement action,” Urban wrote.
Patrick Quinn and Ruth Merisier discuss the legal profession, working at Cadwalader, and more.
