Changes to qui tam rules may be forthcoming

If the Securities and Exchange Commission recovers money because of the actions of a whistleblower, that person could be entitled to up to 30 percent of the amount recovered. This is meant to provide incentive for Louisiana residents to speak up when they suspect illegal activity is taking place. However, a new proposed rule would give the SEC more power to either increase or reduce an award as it sees fit.
