What is a Whistleblower?

What is a whistleblower

If a person in an organization exposes misconduct or alleged illegal activity occurring within that organization, he or she is considered to be a “whistleblower.

While a whistleblower may be trying to help the organization in the long-run by voicing their concerns, oftentimes, the alleged misconduct they expose internally or externally (to the law, media, stakeholders), may end in retaliation at the hands of the organization.

Types of misconduct a whistleblower can report:

  • General violation of laws
  • Performing activities that are a direct threat to the public interest
  • Fraud
  • Health & safety violations
  • Corruption
