Whistleblower actions which are related to violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act are covered by the SEC Whistleblower Program. Whistleblowers may submit an anonymous form to the SEC Whistleblower Program, but must do so in conjunction with being represented by a lawyer. The SEC has stated its broad commitment to maintaining the anonymity of whistleblowers to the fullest extent possible.
Prior to the institution of the SEC Whistleblower Program, which was created by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform & Consumer Protection Act in late 2010, violations of the FCPA were not covered by any whistleblower program. The sheer amount of high-profile FCPA investigations, along with very significant monetary settlements over recent years, leads to a logical conclusion that whistleblowers will have significant opportunity to report FCPA violations under the SEC Whistleblower Program.
Whistleblower Justice Network works with our clients to ensure that they are fully informed of the varied issues related to becoming an SEC whistleblower. The FCPA is a complex law with a host of its own issues, including local country issues, whistleblower protection and evolving case law. Whistleblower Justice Network has an international team of FCPA experts that work alongside our clients to guide them through every aspect of how to report FCPA violations to the SEC Whistleblower Program.
