Whistleblower Program

 

The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act states that eligible whistleblowers will be awarded by the SEC for voluntarily providing information on insider dealing or any other securities violations. For the whistleblower to qualify for the awards, the information provided by the whistleblower should lead to the SEC recovering at least $1million. If the whistleblower qualifies, he/she will be paid 10-30% of the amount recovered by the SEC. The act also prohibits employers from taking any action against employees who provide the SEC with any such information. If employers take any action against whistleblowers in their organizations, the whistleblowers have recourse against the employers. With an SEC Whistleblower attorney, a whistleblower may provide any such information to the SEC anonymously.
