Hmmm…Who should I tell?

Everyone knows that the costs related to Walmart’s Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) investigation are huge – more than $200 billion spent already. And all Walmart staff are familiar with the Walmart Global Ethics Office – it’s the place that most would go if they had information that might aid the investigation. But everyone probably doesn’t know about whistleblower protections that were part of the Dodd-Frank legislation passed in 2010. Under Dodd-Frank, employees are given financial incentives and anti-retaliation protections for reporting securities violations like the FCPA to the Securities and Exchange Commission.
