SEC Prepares For Dodd-Frank Whistleblowers
A sign that the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is seriously committed to routing out corporate fraud, the SEC has set aside $450 million to fund its whistleblower reward program, which was established under The Dodd-Frank Act. The SEC must reward whistleblowers who file complaints that lead to the recovery of funds. The Dodd-Frank Act also includes new, robust protections for whistleblowers from retaliation by their employers.
