US Capitol Capsule: SEC backs up whistleblower shields against 'wolves of Wall Street'

This article was originally published in Scrip

Executive Summary

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is using a lawsuit filed by a former employee of German medical products maker Siemens to solidify the agency's interpretation of whistleblower and anti-retaliation protections in rules it put in place in 2011 under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 – insisting workers are protected under the law whether they make reports of fraud violations internally to their employers or to the commission.
