SEC & Financial Fraud
Helping employees and investors expose financial fraud through the SEC Whistleblower Program
Conscientious individuals in the financial industry now have an avenue to shed light on fraud and obtain a whistleblower award for their efforts. Under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, the financial reform bill passed in the wake of the financial crisis, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) created the SEC Whistleblower Program that covers a broad range of fraudulent conduct, including securities violations and many other forms of misconduct. Individuals who bring information to the SEC through the Whistleblower Program receive an award of up to 30% of any money recovered by the SEC.
Just recently, an SEC whistleblower was awarded $14 million for providing information that led to the recovery of fraudulently-obtained investor funds. The enforcement action resulting in the $14 million award was completed just six months after the SEC whistleblower’s tip.
