Case EvaluationSpeak to a Whistleblower
Whistleblower ethics are respected in most reputable companies and organizations. Often times, questions must be answered in the context of conflicting cultural norms, which make it likely that whistleblowers will incur hostility and alienation. Many people might view the whistleblower as a "snitch," or a "nark.” Or even a lowlife who betrays trust largely for personal gain. This is not always the case. Many whistleblowers are not in it for the money. They see that there is much more lost by not addressing the misconduct. Personal gain is just the government’s way of encouraging the practice of whistleblowing.
On the flip side, whistleblowers are often seen as "saviors" or unsung heroes who ultimately helped create important changes in companies, government or organizations. This approach to whistleblowers as guardians of public accountability is often taken by consumer advocates and special interest agencies.
In the end, it is the hope of this organization that the whistleblower will find the greater good in things and make the right decision.
