The SEC Whistleblower Program And Its Role Of Deterring Securities Violations

Currently, whistleblowers are significantly reporting on securities violations to the SEC. That follows the enactment of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform as well as the Consumer Protection Act in 2010. It is the most considerable overhaul of the financial regulation in the United States since the Great Depression. One of the key reforms is the creation of a new whistleblower program, which offers essential employment protection. It also provides financial incentives to people that report potential contraventions of the federal securities regulations to the SEC.

Labaton Sucharow was the initial law firm to create a practice fully focused on advocating and protecting SEC whistleblowers. The firm did that as a response to the revolutionary legislation. Capitalizing on the firm’s leading securities litigation platform the Whistleblower Representation Practice leverages an in-house team and the experience from state law enforcement. The in-house team is made up of world-class investigators, forensic accountants, and financial analysts. The aim is to offer unmatched representation for the whistleblowers.

Jordan A. Thomas leads the practice. He is a former assistant director as well as the assistant chief litigation counsel in SEC’s division of enforcement. He played an integral role in the formation of the Whistleblower Program during his tenure. His contributions include the drafting of the proposed legislation as well as the final rules for its implementation.

The rules of the program dictate that SEC should pay suitable whistleblowers 10-30%. That is from the monetary sanctions gathered through successful SEC enforcement actions where sanctions amount to over $1 million. Additionally, if that threshold is achieved, whistleblowers can also qualify for extra awards. The additional amount depends on the monetary sanctions collected in actions that are related. These actions must be brought by different regulatory enforcement organizations. The Act also bans retaliation by employers against the whistleblowers that report to SEC in line with the program guidelines. Noteworthy, the whistleblowers can report anonymously if they are represented by an attorney.

For more information about the SEC Whistleblower Program as well as to request a case evaluation, a person can contact the Whistleblower Representation Team. That is by telephone, email, or by making electronic submissions via 

The first case evaluations and consultations are free, confidential, and covered by the attorney-client privilege. People are not required to give the names of the possible securities violators. They are also not allowed to give their personal identification information during the first consultation as much as it is highly encouraged. International whistleblowers can obtain translation services once they make a request.
