Work with an Experienced FCPA Whistleblower Lawyer

As an FCPA whistleblower lawyer, Pugsley Wood attorneys has experience filing FCPA whistleblower tips with the US Securities and Exchange Commission. The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) whistleblower program is a powerful tool that encourages individuals to come forward and report bribery and other corrupt practices to the SEC.

The FCPA Whistleblower Program was established in 1977 to address the issue of bribery and corruption in international business transactions. Recognizing the need for enhanced enforcement and the vital role whistleblowers play, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 strengthened the FCPA’s whistleblower provisions.

The FCPA whistleblower program offers protection and incentives to individuals who report violations of the FCPA, empowering them to act as key allies in the fight against corruption. Whistleblowers can be employees, contractors, or any individual with credible information about potential FCPA violations.

Key Provisions of the FCPA Whistleblower Program

Anonymous Reporting:  Whistleblowers have the option to remain anonymous when reporting FCPA violations, a crucial provision that safeguards them from potential retaliation. This anonymity allows individuals to come forward without fear of reprisal, fostering a culture of accountability within organizations.

Anti-Retaliation Protections: The FCPA whistleblower program prohibits employers from retaliating against individuals who report potential violations. If a whistleblower faces adverse employment actions, such as termination, demotion, or harassment, they have legal recourse to seek remedies and protections under the law.

Monetary Awards: One of the significant incentives for whistleblowers is the possibility of receiving significant monetary awards. Whistleblowers who provide original information leading to successful enforcement actions resulting in monetary sanctions of over $1 million may be eligible for a reward ranging from 10% to 30% of the collected amount.

Confidentiality: The FCPA whistleblower program places a high value on the confidentiality of whistleblower information. This ensures that the identity and information provided by whistleblowers are protected to the greatest extent possible, balancing the need for transparency with the safety of those who come forward.
