The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) pays ﬁnancial rewards to whistleblowers who come forward with evidence to support an SEC investigation, via the SEC Whistleblower Program. This SEC program is designed to aid those who report corporate wrongdoing and upon a successful claim, a monetary reward as well as retaliation protection can be provided.
The SEC Whistleblower Program
The SEC Whistleblower Program began in 2010 under the Dodd-Frank Act. Those who report wrongdoing to the Securities and Exchange Commission can be entitled to reward, should the report net more than $1 million to the government. This amount ranges from 10% to 30% of the amount of money recovered by the government. What this also does is protect the whistleblower from retaliation from the corporation or company they have turned in.
