Overview

The Dodd Frank Act’s whistle-blower provisions make it possible for an individual with “original information” regarding violations of the securities laws to submit it to the SEC and receive up to 30% of the monetary penalties in the event the SEC or certain other government enforcement agencies bring a successful case based on that information and the penalties exceed one million dollars. Unfortunately, the regulations the SEC issued governing the whistle-blower program are dense, virtually incomprehensible to non-lawyers, and full of legal traps to gaining an award. Solid whistle-blower information, which leads to a big case, may still be ineligible for an award, for any one of a multitude of reasons.

  • Controllers and corporate managers

Become able to assess the precautions necessary for organizations to mitigate and avoid retaliation claims. To learn, recognize and evaluate the best strategy for developing useful information from whistle-blowers. Finally to identify the options and risks that a potential whistle-blower should consider.
