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”.

SEC awards $3 million to whistleblower

Reprints
SEC

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission said Wednesday it has awarded nearly $3 million to a whistleblower whose information and assistance led to a successful enforcement action.

“The whistleblower alerted the SEC to previously unknown conduct and then provided substantial additional assistance, which conserved a considerable amount of SEC resources,” said Emily Pasquinelli, acting chief of the SEC’s Office of the Whistleblower, in a statement.

“We have recently given awards to a significant number of whistleblowers, like the one awarded today, who played an important role in our enforcement program’s success.”  

The SEC does not disclose information that could reveal a whistleblower’s identity.

In May, the agency issued awards for more than $28 million and followed that up two days later with awards totaling more than $31 million.
