BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

CFTC awards about $3 million to whistleblower


The Commodity Futures Trading Commission said Friday it has awarded about $3 million to a whistleblower whose information led to a successful enforcement action.

The agency, which keeps the identity of whistleblowers confidential, said it has awarded about $123 million to whistleblowers since issuing its first award in 2014.  It said awards associated with enforcement actions have resulted in monetary sanctions of more than $1 billion.

The CFTC’s whistleblower program was created under the 2010 Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, under which whistleblowers are eligible to receive between 10% and 30% of the monetary sanctions collected.

The Securities and Exchange Commission said last week that it had issued a whistleblower award of more than $50 million to joint whistleblowers, which was the second-largest award in its history.
