Jordan A. Thomas comments on the success of the SEC and EU to encourage whistleblowers

According to The Global Legal Post, there has been a dramatic increase in the number of whistleblowers coming forward since the implementation of the Securities and Exchange Commission’s whistleblower program to help deter and detect fraud.

“The programme has been a remarkable success story. One of the greatest fears for whistleblowers is the fear of retaliation and blacklisting where people in your industry shun you,” Jordan stated.
