Lilienfeld Quoted on Dodd-Frank Diversity Disclosures

Partner Doreen Lilienfeld (New York-Compensation, Governance & ERISA) was quoted in an article published on April 7 by Compliance Week titled, “Dodd-Frank’s Diversity Disclosures Draw Nearer.”

The article discusses the imminent promulgation of rules governing how companies must assess and report workforce diversity data, pursuant to Section 342 of the Dodd-Frank Act. The rules will affect all public companies regardless of sector or size. As expectations mount, people have started paying attention. “Dodd-Frank is going on five years now, and this is not something many have focused on, but in the past couple of months interest has picked up,” Lilienfeld said. “People have renewed their focus on the provision.”
