The Discussion
Whistleblower laws encourage employees to report illegal activities within an organization by providing retaliation protections and, in some cases, bounty rewards. The good is that employees who are aware of corporate wrongdoing are encouraged to report it and this should benefit the organization, its stakeholders, and society at large.
Yet, there may another side to this story. Do the laws encourage employees to “spy” on the firm? How have people fared after blowing the whistle? For that matter, what is the evidence on whether the laws have actually been effective in reducing corporate wrongdoing?
Larry Zicklin (BBA ‘57) discusses these questions with Professor Jennifer Pacella, Kelley School of Business, and with Professor Valerie Watnick, Chair of the Zicklin School of Business Department of Law. With an introduction by Dean Fenwick Huss and a Q&A session moderated by Associate Dean Gwen Webb.
