CFTC boosts anti-retaliation protections for whistleblowers -statement

WASHINGTON, May 22 (Reuters) - The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission said on Monday it had updated its whistleblower rules to strengthen the agency’s anti-retaliation protections for whistleblowers and enhance the process for reviewing whistleblower claims.

In a statement, it said the changes allow the CFTC or the whistleblower to bring an action against an employer for retaliation against a whistleblower. The rules also prohibit employers from taking steps to impede a would-be whistleblower from communicating directly with CFTC staff about potential violations of federal derivatives laws.
