Jordan A. Thomas quoted on how companies should encourage employees with information of corporate misconduct to come forward


Firms should adopt innovative techniques to encourage employees to report possible unethical conduct, including recognizing them publicly and offering financial incentives, said Jordan Thomas, a partner in the New York law firm Labaton Sucharow.

“Organizations should be prepared to investigate, in a timely manner, reports of misconduct. When legal or ethical violations are discovered, violators should be held accountable, regardless of their position in the organization, and in a manner consistent with others similarly situated,” Thomas said.
