CFTC Whistleblower Program

The CFTC Whistleblower Program, launched in 2010 as part of the Dodd-Frank Act, rewards qualified individuals who come forward voluntarily with “original information” regarding breaches of the Commodity Exchange Act. This initiative offers monetary awards to whistleblowers whose disclosures lead to successful enforcement actions, resulting in monetary penalties surpassing $1,000,000. Administered by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, the program operates through the dedicated Office of the Whistleblower, which provides comprehensive details about the initiative online.

In order to qualify as a CFTC whistleblower, you need to:

  • Report violations of the Commodity Exchange Act (CEA); and
  • Provide information that results in monetary sanctions of at least $1,000,000.00

While the CEA provides aggressive protection from retaliation, including meaningful penalties, companies may still illegally retaliate against whistleblowers.
