SEC Awards Whistleblower Largest Bounty Ever

September 24, 2014 |  High Stakes Employment Issues


The Securities & Exchange Commission announced Monday that it is awarding more than $30 million dollars to a confidential whistleblower who led federal officials to an internal fraud that officials say would otherwise have gone undetected. The Dodd-Frank Act, enacted in 2010, established a bounty program to reward employees who report wrongdoing to the SEC.  You can read more about the details of this latest award (and the other developments under Dodd-Frank and Sarbanes-Oxley) in the blog post by our colleague, B&T litigation partner, Brian Casey.
