Whistleblowing at Work

What is whistleblowing?

The term whistleblowing can be defined as raising a concern about a wrong doing within an organisation. The concern must be a genuine concern about a crime, criminal offence, miscarriage of justice, dangers to health and safety and of the environment – And the cover up of any of these.

    If you work in bomb disposal or brain surgery then someone blowing a whistle may have catastrophic results.

    slang for the action of giving head.   

     

    On this basis, I'm not sure that it's terribly appropriate to 'blow the whistle' at work Karen.

    Or you're trying to quickly work your way up the corporate ladder I suppose, in which case it may be of great benefit.

    Brings a whole new meaning to 'whistle while you work'!

  • Whistle blowing is good but like all good things can be used wrongly. American companies have fairly strong ethical policies with confidential phone lines for reporting, I have seen this cynically used to undermine people 

  • Karen - could you investigate 'filibustering' next ?

  • Here you are Dicky:

  • As usual, the urban dictionary definition is much more entertaining:
