Are CFTC whistleblowers protected against retaliation?

Yes, Section 23(h)(1) of the Commodity Exchange Act prohibits retaliation by a covered employer against a whistleblower.  The whistleblower protection provision of the CEA is a critical component of the CFTC Whistleblower Reward Program, under which the CFTC rewards whistleblowers that provide original information leading to CFTC enforcement actions. A whistleblower may receive an award of between 10% to 30% of the total monetary sanctions collected.
