Public Company Hotline Checklist


Public companies in the United States are required to have a whistleblower hotline by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and the Dodd-Frank Act. These hotlines allow employees to report concerns about accounting, internal accounting controls, auditing matters, and other potential wrongdoing without fear of retaliation.

Public companies that do not have a whistleblower hotline may be subject to fines or other penalties. They may also be exposed to increased liability for lawsuits.
