Whistleblower cases which are related to violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act are filed under the SEC Whistleblower Program. The opportunity for whistleblowers to report FCPA fraud and receive a whistleblower reward was created in July 2010 with the passage of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.
FCPA violations occur in a wide variety of ways, and the issues as to what is actionable or not are evolving in many cases. Whistleblowers are likely to accelerate the pace of FCPA prosecutions, however, the implementation of the SEC Whistleblower Program offers several unique challenges. By the nature of the conduct, many whistleblowers can be expected to reside in foreign countries, reporting FCPA violations occuring in other countries – and in many instances likely multiple foreign countries – each with their own privacy and other relevant laws.
