GREENWICH, Conn., Dec. 7, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- The risks and personal exposure that come with serving on boards of directors, whether public or private, have dramatically increased.
Cases of employee discrimination, wrongful termination and shareholder rights increasingly try to pin liability - and damages - on board members. In addition, claims by customers (e.g., product failure) and competitors (e.g., antitrust and unfair trade practices) are on the rise.
Regulators have also increased their scrutiny of boards. Specifically, new rules attached to the Dodd-Frank Financial Reform and Consumer Protection Act raise the risks for directors, especially members of public company boards. The Security & Exchange Commission (SEC) has been granted additional enforcement resources and become much more aggressive.
Are you aware of newly changed liability issues? Do you know what questions to ask to ensure you are adequately protected?
Join Chief Executive magazine for a free, 60-minute webinar to learn what the new SEC enforcement changes mean for public company board members and what all board members should do to protect themselves.
