SEC Whistleblower Provisions
December 17, 2010

A summary of the comment letter:

  • "The proposed rules encourage individuals to bypass internal processes."
  • "The proposed rules will undermine successful compliance systems."
  • "Whistleblower rules will undermine existing SEC processes."

Wells Fargo makes distinctions between collecting whistleblower awards and providing original information protected by existing judicial or administrative orders, urging the SEC to deny or reduce awards for people involved in unlawful public disclosure.
