Rewards, Confidentiality and Protection for Whistleblowers
The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act was signed into law by President Obama on July 21, 2010. This new financial reform law was created to curb Wall Street corruption and to encourage the reporting of securities violations.
The new law provides whistleblowers with significant financial rewards, confidentiality and protection against employer retaliation.
