Whistleblower Claims Attorney
In 2010, Congress passed the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer
Protection Act which, among many other things, amended the Securities
Exchange Act of 1934 to significantly increase whistleblower incentives
and protections. The Dodd-Frank Act and corresponding regulations provide
that a whistleblower is entitled to 10% to 30% of any recovery by the
Securities and Exchange Commission that exceeds $1 million. The Act also
provides protection against retaliation and allows a whistleblower to
bring a private action for reinstatement, back pay and damages. A whistleblower
who is represented by counsel may stay anonymous throughout the entire
proceedings until the payment of an award.
