Recent CFTC Whistleblower Awards Signal Flexibility in Determining Award Percentage
CFTC has broad discretion to increase award percentage.
Recent whistleblower awards have provided valuable clues into the CFTC and how they determine amounts for a CFTC whistleblower award. This white paper reviews criteria for the awards and when an increase may be chosen. This material also discusses that minimal participation in a fraud scheme doesn’t automatically remove the whistleblower from receiving an award.
Jason Zuckerman litigates whistleblower retaliation and rewards, wrongful discharge, and other employment-related claims, and authors the Whistleblower Protection Law Blog. His broad experience includes serving as Senior Legal Advisor to the Special Counsel at the U.S. Office of Special Counsel, the federal agency charged with protecting whistleblowers in the federal government. In 2012, the Secretary of Labor appointed Zuckerman to serve on the Whistleblower Protection Advisory Committee, which makes recommendations to the Secretary of Labor to improve OSHA’s administration of federal whistleblower protections.
Matthew Stock is an associate at Zuckerman Law, where his practice focuses on representing whistleblowers in whistleblower rewards and whistleblower retaliation cases. Mr. Stock has audited a broad range of industries, both domestically and internationally, including large public companies and financial institutions. He uses his auditing experience to help IRS, CFTC and SEC whistleblowers investigate and disclose complex financial frauds to the government.
