Posted on Thursday October 02, 2014

Who Is a Whistleblower Under the Dodd-Frank Act?
Posted on Tuesday September 09, 2014

When read together, Dodd-Frank is ambiguous as to whether a whistleblower must complain directly to the SEC in order to qualify as a whistleblower and benefit from the law’s anti-retaliation protections. The SEC’s implementing rule provides protection from retaliation to workers who make protected disclosures regardless of whether they report the information to the SEC or another source.

SEC Moving Forward on CEO Pay Disclosure Rules
Posted on Wednesday November 13, 2013

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is moving forward on rules that will require companies to disclose their CEO-to-worker pay ratio. The rule is mandated under the Dodd-Frank Act. The proposal would specifically amend existing executive compensation disclosure rules to require companies to disclose: The median of the annual total compensation of all its employees (excluding the CEO); The annual total compensation of its CEO; and The ratio of the two amounts. In good news for companies, the SEC elected not to devise any particular methodology for making the required calculations. Rather, the proposed rules would allow companies to select […]

SEC Proposes Long-Awaited Crowdfunding Rules
Posted on Monday November 04, 2013

After months of delays, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) finally released proposed rules pursuant to the JOBS Act to permit companies to offer and sell securities through crowdfunding. While crowdfunding has become a popular way to raise money online, securities regulations kept it out of reach for many investors and small businesses. Once final rules are adopted, start-ups and growing ventures will be permitted to solicit investments from “everyday” investors using the Internet. The SEC’s proposed rules to implement the JOBS Act provisions set forth the regulatory framework under which equity crowdfunding will operate. Some of the most significant […]
