Eligibility

With few exclusions or qualifications, any individual or group of individuals, regardless of citizenship, can participate in the SEC Whistleblower Program.

With the anonymous reporting, employment protections and monetary awards offered by the SEC Whistleblower Program, employees are finally empowered to speak out against misconduct. In fact, in May 2015, the University of Notre Dame and Labaton Sucharow conducted the largest known survey of the US/UK Financial Services Industry, which revealed that with protections and incentives such as those offered by the SEC Whistleblower Program, 89% of industry professionals would report wrongdoing. Sadly, many knowledgeable individuals are unaware of the program or don’t know if they are eligible to participate.

Although the difficult decision about whether, how, and when to blow the whistle will depend upon the unique facts and circumstances of each case, we have created a tool to help potential SEC whistleblowers better understand their eligibility for these important statutory whistleblower rights.
