June 3, 2014

Resources

On May 19, 2014, the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) issued its first award under the CFTC’s whistleblower award program. Since its inception in October 2011, the CFTC’s whistleblower award program has steadily gained momentum. In fiscal 2012, the CFTC received 58 whistleblower tips; in fiscal 2013, the CFTC received 138. With the announcement of its first award, the profile of the CFTC and its whistleblower award program are expected to increase even further.
 
In their article for Law360, “10 Important Aspects of the CFTC Whistleblower Program,” Sutherland’s Gregory S. Kaufman, Allegra J. Lawrence-Hardy and Blair P. Scott discuss key considerations for companies operating under the jurisdiction of the CFTC and highlight additional considerations for energy and commodities companies.
