Incidents of workplace bullying, harassment, and discrimination never seem to be far from the headlines. But while the three forms of misconduct are often lumped together, bullying is especially difficult to address as there is no legal definition for it in the UK.
Diversity Q | December 2020

Lexology | December 2020
On December 7, 2020, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) will implement new rules to its whistleblower program with the goals of providing greater transparency to the process, and increasing both the incentives and awards whistleblowers receive. The latter point will see awards increased to the “maximum extent appropriate,” where sanctions obtained by the SEC are $5 million or less, which in this case is 30% of sanctions obtained. This rule applies to ‘all award claims still pending’ on December 7, 2020. Thus, the applicability of this rule is retroactive.

Diginomica| November 2019
One aspect of the software that I liked was the software’s ability to ‘connect the dots’ when other employees are experiencing a similar issue or different issues from the same perpetrator. If HR wants to get ahead of potential litigation or avoid the corporate and recruiting brand damage that occurs when rogue behavior becomes public, it might want to consider a more considered solution like Vault’s.
