Whistleblowers who report certain types of misconduct to state and federal authorities can secure multi-million dollar awards based upon the fines and damages that government entities collect as a result of the whistleblowers’ disclosures. In the wake of the global financial crisis, the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission adopted robust whistleblower programs. The subject matter of whistleblowers’ tips may include suspected accounting fraud, corporate fraud, market manipulation, insider trading, stockbroker fraud, and other securities law violations.
