This is FCPA Whistleblower clipart.FCPA whistleblowers who report companies bribing foreign immigration officials to the SEC may be eligible for a reward under the Dodd-Frank program. SEC-regulated companies and their subsidiaries and affiliates will sometimes bribe foreign immigration officials to obtain visas, work permits, and residence permits for their expatriates.

Corporations will often want expatriates to manage or lead their foreign operations. Countries typically limit the number of foreign employees a company may use, as each country wants to promote the hiring of its local population. As a result, companies will frequently bribe local immigration officials to obtain additional visas and work permits for their expatriate employees beyond the quota allowed under local law.

Anyone who has knowledge of an SEC-regulated company bribing a foreign immigration official should consult with counsel who has experience filing confidential Dodd-Frank reward submissions, as this could be very valuable information.
