Rules recently proposed by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission define the scope and procedures of the whistleblower provisions under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.

On November 3, 2010, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) issued proposed rules regarding the whistleblower provisions under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. The SEC’s proposed Regulation 21F defines critical terms, outlines procedures and generally explains the scope of its new whistleblower program. The proposed rules also address the important issue of whether whistleblowers should report suspected violations to their internal compliance and legal departments before making such reports to the SEC and how such internal reporting will affect their ability to receive a financial award under the program.
