Section 21F of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, adopted under Section 922 of the Dodd-Frank Act, was signed into law by President Obama on July 21, 2010. Section 21F creates financial incentives and provides increased protection for whistleblowers who voluntarily provide to the Securities and Exchange Commission original information that leads to successful enforcement actions against reporting Companies.
