DOJ launches pilot program to enhance voluntary self-disclosure and combat white-collar crime

May 30, 2024

In April 2024, the US Department of Justice (DOJ) Criminal Division released its Pilot Program on Voluntary Self-Disclosures for Individuals to help detect and prosecute white-collar crime. The program aims to promote corporate accountability, provide a framework for voluntary self-disclosure, and enhance regulatory oversight.

In this article, Rachel Berk and Frank Esposito explain how this initiative emphasizes the importance of transparency and integrity in organizations, contributing to a stronger framework for combating and deterring corporate wrongdoing. They also explore strategies organizations can use to navigate compliance and self-reporting, including reassessing and enhancing their own compliance programs and internal investigation protocols.
