New York, NY, December 23, 2015 --( The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, announced today that it has scheduled a live webcast entitled: Whistleblowing: The Landmark to Global Compliance in 2016 Live Webcast. This two-hour event is scheduled on Thursday, January 28, 2016 @ 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM (ET).

Event Synopsis:

More and more countries across the globe are now adopting forms of Whistleblower Protection laws. It is worth noting that legal protection for whistleblowers varies significantly in effect and with jurisdiction. The global differences pose critical challenges for multinational employers imposing compliance policies and whistleblowing reporting schemes that are consistent across the organization and with applicable local regulations.

In this regard, it is imperative that multinational companies consider cultural differences in designing their whistleblowing programs, and ensure that they meet the demands of the international industry. Taking an adaptable approach will enable companies to effectively address potential malpractices at an early stage.

In this two hour, Live Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders organized by The Knowledge Group will help multinational companies understand the importance of Whistleblower Programs in Global Compliance for Multi-national Corporations in 2016. Speakers will also provide best practices in developing and implementing an effective whistle-blowing policy and in ensuring global compliance with local laws.

Key topics include:

· Whistleblower Protection Among Countries
· Global Approach to Whistleblowing
· Compliance Challenges for Global Employers
· Whistleblowing Hotlines
