In this interactive online training, employees learn about insider trading and how it can impact them and your company. Among other things, employees will learn:
Companies should provide periodic training on how to avoid insider trading to all employees. Insider trading isn’t just a risk for senior executives or large shareholders. Any employee can violate insider trading laws if they learn of “material, nonpublic information” and trade based on that information. Employees can also violate insider trading laws if they tip off friends or family members and they make such trades.
Because insider trading is a crime, it can tarnish an organization’s reputation and threaten the future profitability of the company. It can also pose a legal risk to the company, which can face disruptive and expensive investigations that can lead to significant fines and penalties.
While most employees do not have malicious intent, they may inadvertently violate insider trading laws if they do not receive training on how to comply with the nuances of these laws. As a result, public companies, and businesses that may learn of material, nonpublic information about public companies, should provide all their employees with practical training on how to comply with insider trading laws.
