Sarbanes-Oxley and Multilateral Instrument 52-110 Compliance

Public companies are required to have a whistleblower policy and process in place for employees. Although a “one-size-fits-all” approach is not recommended, a third-party system provides all the tools needed to make the process easier.

Get the tools you need to ensure Regulatory compliance.

The Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) mandates all public companies to set out rules that prevent employers from discharging, suspending, threatening, harassing or retaliating against employees who expose unlawful conduct through whistleblowing activities, or assist in investigations of U.S Federal Securities law violations.
Canada’s similar bill, the Multilateral Instrument (MI) 52-110, establishes explicit protections for whistleblowers, and requires public companies to establish procedures for the receipt and retention of complaints. All Canadian companies must comply with the bill to ensure they are compliant with the legislation.
