SEC Exceeds $1 Billion in Whistleblower Awards

The Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) announced that its whistleblower program has now paid more than $1 billion in awards to 207 whistleblowers since its first award in 2012, and has paid over $500 million to 101 whistleblowers in fiscal year 2021 alone. The awards can range from 10% to 30% of the money collected by the SEC when the sanctions exceed $1 million and are funded by the sanctions and not by investors who were harmed. Information provided by whistleblowers since the program began has resulted in more than $4.8 billion being collected in financial remedies.

SEC Slightly Increases Dollar Amount Thresholds for “Qualified Client”

The Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) has slightly adjusted the dollar amount thresholds for assets-under-management and net worth tests for a “qualified client”. Registered investment advisers have generally been prohibited from charging a client a performance fee unless the client is a qualified client, defined to include a client with (a) at least $1 million under management with the investment adviser or (b) a net worth of more than $2.1 million (the “net worth test”). The SEC has issued an Order increasing the assets-under-management threshold to $1.1 million and the net worth test to $2.2 million. The Order will be effective as of August 16, 2021.

Record Number of Health Fraud Cases Reported by DOJ

The DOJ opened over 900 False Claims cases last year involving healthcare fraud and is focusing on misuse of electronic health records, contribution to the opioid epidemic, abuse of senior citizens, manipulation of Medicare’s managed care program, and improper claims of COVID-19 relief funds. The False Claims Act (FCA) is the DOJ’s predominant tool in companies’ liability for defrauding the government and in recovering taxpayer money, and 366 FCA matters—including 265 healthcare fraud cases—were settled in 2020.

SEC Whistleblower Program awards $175 Million in 2020

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s (“SEC”) Whistleblower Program released its Fiscal Year (FY) 2020 Annual Report (the “Report”) to Congress on November 16, 2020. According to the Report, the SEC received over 6,900 whistleblower tips during FY 2020 (which ended September 30, 2020), which was a 31% increase from FY 2018, the second highest tip year, and a 130% increase since the beginning of the program. The SEC’s FY 2020 awards included five separate awards of $10 million or greater and a total of $175 million to 39 individuals in FY 2020.  To date, the SEC has recovered more than $2.7 billion in total monetary sanctions from its enforcement actions arising from whistleblower tips.Click here for SEC’s 2020 Annual Report to Congress for Whistleblower Program

New SEC Rules and Deadlines Could Impact Thousands of Cases

On November 5, 2020, rule changes to the SEC Whistleblower Program were published in the Federal Register. Although December 7, 2020 is the effective date of these rule changes, the new rules created several deadlines that apply retroactively, requiring SEC whistleblowers and their attorneys to be very attentive to and aware of these changes. One of the most significant rule changes is in Rule 21F-9, which now requires whistleblowers to submit a Tip, Complaint or Referral (“TCR”) form within 30 days of first providing original information to the SEC in order to qualify for a reward when filing a whistleblower action. This 30-day deadline may be tolled by the SEC via a waiver if the whistleblower can demonstrate that he or she complied with the rule within 30 days of first learning about the requirement. However, a whistleblower can trigger the 30-day deadline when he or she retains an attorney to file a whistleblower claim. The applicability of this rule is “to all award claims still pending” as of December 7, 2020, and to all future filings. Accordingly, all SEC whistleblowers and whistleblower attorneys must be aware of this 30-day filing deadline, particularly in cases where the SEC was contacted by a whistleblower prior to retaining an attorney.
