In 2010, as part of the Dodd-Frank Act, the U.S. Congress established for the first time a comprehensive whistleblower program for the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The Dodd-Frank Act and the SEC whistleblower rules are complex. Because of this, there may be a lot of SEC whistleblower information New York employees and others may not be aware of.
One type of SEC whistleblower information New York employees and others often seek is information about how the SEC whistleblower award program works. Generally speaking, if you report a fraud at the company you work for (or a fraud at another company) to the SEC, you may be eligible to become an SEC whistleblower. If you meet the requirements and become an SEC whistleblower, and if the SEC collects over $1 million from the company or the individuals who were responsible for the fraud that you reported, you will be entitled to receive a monetary reward from the SEC. According to the Dodd-Frank Act, the SEC must give out that reward. The amount of the reward must be between 10% – 30% of the amount of money that the SEC collects based on the information that the whistleblower(s) provided.
There are many other kinds of SEC whistleblower information New York employees and others may want to know more about. Some of that information can be found by clicking on the “SEC Whistleblowers” link on the right side of this page or by clicking here.
