The widespread introduction of legislation protecting the actions of ‘whistleblowers’, and increased public expectations of global corporate accountability, mean that businesses need to adopt a proactive approach to managing allegations or disclosures that point to misconduct within their organisation. Not understanding the law surrounding whistleblowing can be costly for businesses in terms of potential claims as well as damage to reputation.
Whistleblowing is a high priority on international and national anti-corruption agendas, and is continuing to grow in importance, highlighting whistleblowing’s relevance as a corporate governance and regulatory tool.
