SENATOR GRASSLEY HAS HARSH WORDS FOR SEC CHAIR REGARDING WHISTLEBLOWER TREATMENT
US Senator Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) wrote to the SEC chairwoman, Mary Schapiro, and asked her to forego the proposed whistleblower rule which would require whistleblowers to report the non-compliance issue to compliance officers BEFORE filing a claim with the SEC. Sen. Grassley acknowledged the primary purpose of the SEC – “to protect investors – not internal compliance programs.” Read Sen. Grassley’s letter HERE. The Dodd-Frank Act authorized the SEC to reward individuals who report securities violations with a bounty of 10-30% for recoveries larger than $ 1 million.
