Personal assistants, secretaries, and administrative support staff who report their companies bribing foreign officials are eligible for rewards under the Dodd-Frank program. Personal assistants often hear about bribery during the course of their work. Some even come across suspicious emails, texts, spreadsheets, or other documents referencing corrupt practices and bribery. This information can be extremely valuable if reported to the SEC under the highly confidential Dodd-Frank reward program.
Some administrative support personnel assist the accounting and finance department. In those roles, they often learn about payments or incentives being provided to regulatory officials to obtain permits and licenses. Personal assistants also support corporate sales teams. During the course of this work, they can become aware of payments and incentives being provided to government decision makers in order to obtain business and deals. This can be very valuable information if reported under the Dodd-Frank reward program.
If current or former personal assistants or administrative support personnel learn of their companies paying officials or hiring or engaging officials’ relatives, they may have a reward eligible case and should feel free to contact me for a free confidential consultation.
