Latest whistleblower award from SEC tops $150K

Securities and Exchange Commission gives latest award under provisions of the Dodd-Frank Act

It seems as if the whistleblower provisions of the 2010 Dodd-Frank financial reform act are starting to gain momentum, as the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) announced the latest award, more than $150,000, given as part of the program.

This is not the largest award the SEC has handed out as part of the whistleblower program. That distinction goes to a Sept. 30 award that topped $14 million. Still, the news that the SEC has given another award gives a clear sign that the Commission is taking the program seriously.
