CFTC Whistleblower Provisions
February 4, 2011
From the comment letter:
- "As drafted, the Proposed Rule might encourage employees to allow misconduct to arise (instead of proactively preventing or mitigating it) in order to ensure they will qualify for an award."
- "The Proposed Rule should broaden the definition of “original information” to include information an employee provided to his or her company and that is later reported to the Commission by the company."
- "The proposed rule should require employees to first report potential violations internally as a prerequisite to entitlement to an award."
