News & Insights
Whether you are an employee of an organization that may be engaged in wrongdoing or, in an outsider capacity you suspect corporate misconduct, the decision to step forward as a whistleblower is an important and complex one.
But as a preliminary matter, are you eligible? Although the SEC’s program has few exclusions, there are basic criteria that must be met to establish eligibility. While we stand ready to answer any questions and evaluate potential cases, we know that some prospective whistleblowers appreciate the ability to learn more about the program on their own time, in their own space, and with absolute confidentiality.
To that end, we created the SEC Whistleblower Eligibility Calculator, a first-of-its-kind interactive tool for potential whistleblowers to understand the program’s general qualifications. The easy-to-use calculator presents users with various questions, which then lead to a customized and detailed eligibility report. The assessment also provides numerous links to the rules, regulations and other helpful resources. The calculator does not require you to input personally-identifying information, nor does it save your answers. Importantly, the assessment does not constitute legal advice. Each situation is different and individuals are encouraged to speak with a whistleblower advocate should they wish to discuss their case in detail.
THIS ASSESSMENT TOOL DOES NOT PROVIDE LEGAL ADVICE.
It is intended for general informational purposes only. Please be advised that legal advice cannot be given without full consideration of all the unique facts and circumstances associated with your situation and the possible violations you wish to report. Ultimately, the decision to report possible securities violations, internally or externally, is an important one and should be carefully considered. You are strongly encouraged to consult with an attorney or independently research the applicable laws and any reporting options that may be available to you within your organization.
