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.
Given this division of whistleblower ethics, individuals may well encounter difficulties when they appeal or complain internally or go public with information that may damage their companies.
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.
Each year, the government loses billions of dollars due to fraud and misconduct of companies and organizations. If you or someone you know has reason to believe that employer or government misconduct is present you may have legal options for compensation. In recent years, whistleblower litigation has helped save billions of government US dollars.
Those who witness these illegal actions have legal options and may seek compensation through litigation. Filing a claim against the entity responsible may result in compensation for the whistleblower that can be up to 25 percent of the government recovery. Billions have been rewarded to whistleblowers!
