Are whistleblowers protected against retaliation for disclosing money laundering?
Yes, the Anti-Money Laundering Act of 2020 protects anti-money laundering whistleblowers against retaliation, including whistleblowers who have provided information to FinCEN through the anti-money laundering whistleblower program. And some disclosures protected under the AMLA implicate tax fraud, securities fraud, or violations of SEC rules, and therefore whistleblowers should consider preserving retaliation claims under the whistleblower protection provisions of the Taxpayer First Act and Sarbanes-Oxley Act.
