SEC Whistleblower: Protection for the Consumer

The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act has been enacted by Congress in 2010. This is a much needed development because businesses tend to operate in a way that throws ethics out of the window. There have been a lot of fraud and other unethical business methods that have left people victimized. The unfortunate thing is that a lot of the people that are not happy with this handling of business is silenced because of the threat of consequences. However, a lot of unethical handling of business has been revealed in the economic downturn of 2008.

The SEC Whistleblower program offers protection for the employee as well as some incentives for people to report any potential violations to the SEC. Thanks to the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, people have a platform to talk about any violations that they witness in their company. The SEC Whistleblower program operates under certain rules that not only offers the person protection, but compensation. In fact, eligible whistleblowers will receive between 10 and 30% of the sanctions that have been collected in the investigation. So not only do employees not have to worry about not getting fired or facing other severe consequences, they can also get compensated for revealing unethical practices. Whistleblowers may also get additional awards for sanctions that exceed $1 million.

One good thing about the Dodd-Frank act is that employers are forbidden to retaliate against the whistleblower. Another thing is that the whistleblower can choose to be anonymous if they choose to be represented by a lawyer. Even though the employer is forbidden to retaliate, the whistleblower can choose to protect himself by not providing any information that could identify them. There are also services available for whistleblowers that are in other countries and nations. Among the services are translation services for clients from countries that don’t speak English as its primary language.

This is one of the ways that businesses are being made to improve their conduct. Also, the SEC makes the corporate world a safer place for people to work in. The SEC Whistleblower program also offers free case evaluations. http://www.secwhistlebloweradvocate.com/

Andy Wirth Comments on California Droughts

California has been dealing with droughts for many years now and they have come up with great ways to conserve water. It has been shown recently in studies that Californians have cut down on their water consumption by just over 20%. It is easy to see how a drought can affect an ecosystem during the hot summer months, but how will it affect the winter months at ski resorts?

Recently on Press Play with Madeline Brand, I heard ski resort CEO and expert Andy Wirth Shed some light on this situation. As CEO of Squaw Valley Ski Resort, Wirth has a great deal of experience dealing with the natural resources that make a ski resort work.  Learn more about Andy Wirth: http://squawalpine.com/explore/blog/andy-wirth-elected-chairman-reno-tahoe-regional-air-service-corporation

Wirth confidently responded to questions from Brand about the resilience of Squaw Valley Resort due to the less than average winter weather conditions. Even with skier visits down by 20%, Wirth stated that the capital structure of Squaw Valley Resort is strong enough that it could withstand an infinite number of less than average precipitation winters. Squaw Valley has remained profitable even during the lower precipitation conditions.

Wirth comments that resorts must position themselves to thrive during the warmer winters and then to take advantage of when the conditions are colder and snowier.

Snowmaking is a technique that Andy Wirth and other CEOs of resorts have implemented to fight back against the warmer winters. With the increased volatility of weather in the winter months, Wirth is more concerned with a long-term business model that will allow for variation in these warmer winter months. Wirth is setting a great example for resort CEOs all across the country who still want to be profitable during these unsure times.

Investing in new snowmaking technologies will be a great way for many resorts to take more control of the winter conditions during the volatile winter months.

Wirth is also focusing heavily on the summer months as well at Squaw Valley Resort with corporate events, triathlons, concerts, weddings, and more. With shorter winter seasons, the summer activities are becoming more crucial in the business plan for any mountain resort.  Learn more about Andy Wirth: http://andywirth.com/

Wirth is an individual who has not only had great success in managing resorts professionally but also in managing his own personal life. In 2013, Wirth was in an unfortunate freak skydiving accident where he lost control of his descent and crash landed into a vineyard.

This resulted in his arm being completely severed. Instead of giving up, Wirth was determined to use this challenge to help him grow. With the help of many doctors, surgeons, and physical therapists, Wirth was able to regain full control of his arm. This goes to show that Wirth is not the kind of guy to just give up.
