Genesee & Wyoming Board Member Should Use Sarbanes-Oxley Disclosure Rules in Non-Profit Role, Asserts 1199 SEIU

Union asks board member to seek restatement of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center audit

BOSTON, Feb. 6 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Genesee & Wyoming director Robert M. Melzer should apply the same Sarbanes-Oxley standards used by Genesee and Wyoming and other publicly traded companies to his role on the board of CareGroup, the parent organization of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), according to labor group 1199 SEIU United Healthcare Workers East. Meltzer is also the retired president and CEO of Property Capital Trust.

1199 SEIU asserts that board members who serve on publicly traded companies covered by Sarbanes-Oxley should apply their knowledge of Sarbanes-Oxley disclosure standards in their nonprofit roles.

Sarbanes-Oxley does not apply directly to nonprofit organizations. However, under Massachusetts law, nonprofit directors must use their specialized knowledge and experience in their role as nonprofit fiduciaries (Mass. Gen. Laws ch. 180 section 6C).

Inadequate charity care disclosure may endanger a hospital's state or local tax exemptions or expose the institution to other regulatory consequences.

A letter sent to Melzer and other Sarbanes-Oxley affected members of the boards of BIDMC and its parent organization CareGroup reads, "Your breadth of experience in the private sector combined with your service on non-profit CareGroup's board of directors uniquely positions you to recognize the deficiencies in BIDMC's financial reporting." The letter asks that fiduciaries request the withdrawal and revisi
