Following is an excerpt:

Employers in the financial services industry are faced with a growing number of employment law challenges: whistleblower complaints are on the rise as regulatory agencies become more aggressive in their efforts to encourage employees to report alleged unlawful conduct; the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority arbitration process is becoming even more unpredictable under new rules that may result in arbitration panels less familiar with the industry; and expanding globalization requires employers to navigate numerous immigration hurdles that arise from managing a cross-border workforce.
