Final Rule: Whistleblower Incentives and Protection

RIN: 3038–AD04

Agency/Agencies: CFTC

Federal Register Publication Date: 08/25/2011

Summary: The CFTC adopted final rules and new forms to implement Section 23 of the Commodity Exchange Act (‘‘CEA’’) entitled ‘‘Commodity Whistleblower Incentives and Protection.’’ The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, enacted on July 21, 2010 (‘‘Dodd-Frank Act’’), established a whistleblower program that requires the CFTC to pay an award, under regulations prescribed by the CFTC and subject to certain limitations, to eligible whistleblowers who voluntarily provide the CFTC with original information about a violation of the CEA that leads to the successful enforcement of a covered judicial or administrative action, or a related action. The Dodd-Frank Act also prohibits retaliation by employers against individuals who provide the CFTC with information about possible CEA violations.
