NWC Opposes Corporate Lobby Attempt to Weaken Whistleblower Provisions in Dodd-Frank

November 3rd SEC public meeting will address whistleblower provisions

WASHINGTON - Yesterday, the National Whistleblowers Center submitted comments
to the Securities and Exchange Committee opposing recommendations by
the "Corporate Lobby" that threaten the integrity the Dodd-Frank Act's
whistleblower provisions.

The SEC will consider whether to
propose rules and forms to implement Section 21F of the Securities
Exchange Act of 1934 entitled "Securities Whistleblower Incentives and
Protection" at an open meeting tomorrow at 10:00 a.m.

M. Kohn, Executive Director of the National Whistleblowers Center said,
"The Dodd-Frank Act clearly states that the rules implemented by the SEC
must be 'user-friendly'. We will be paying close attention to
tomorrow's SEC meeting to see if the SEC's promise to
protect whistleblowers is more than simple lip service."
