The SEC Whistleblower Reward Program

 

The Securities and Exchange Commission Whistleblower Program empowers you to report securities and corporate fraud and earn a substantial reward.

The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act created a new SEC whistleblower program that authorizes substantial cash rewards to whistleblowers who voluntarily provide the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) with information relating to corporate and securities fraud. The Commission is authorized by Congress to provide monetary awards to eligible individuals who come forward with high-quality original information that leads to a Commission enforcement action over $1,000,000. The range for awards is between 10% and 30% of the money collected. Since 2012, the program has awarded close to $300 million in awards to whistleblowers, of which $30 million were given to an individual living in a foreign country.

This financial reform law is the government’s latest attempt to eliminate illegal and fraudulent conduct on Wall Street and promote greater corporate compliance with federal securities law.  The program permits whistleblowers, who are represented by counsel, to submit tips anonymously to the SEC. Under some conditions, a whistleblower’s identity may be withheld even from the SEC until a reward determination is made. However, even at the time the reward, the whistleblower’s identity is not made available to the public.


The SEC Whistleblower Rewards Program applies to a broad range of industries and the whistleblower protection laws have specific applications to companies within certain industries. The finer points of the Whistleblower laws can be broken down into specific industries, industry-specific issues, and specific examples of each violation. The different groups of lawyers we work with are specialized in the specificity of the law and could help you navigate towards a substantial reward. Note that fraudulent acts committed outside of the USA could still be considered a securities or corporate fraud. A public company registered with the SEC that commits corporate fraud or securities fraud on foreign soil is still accountable to the SEC for that fraud.  You can act today.
