‘Whistleblowing’ – the word started to be known in 1970s. In Malaysia, the
act pertaining this matter has been enforced on 15th December 2010 by its
name Whistleblower Protection Act 2010, under the Act 117. The need to
establish this act is seen after several initiatives and programmes handled by
government to uphold the public administration in Malaysia have failed to
give any significant impact. After all, the wrongdoings are still happening at
an alarming stake. To note, the act pertaining whistleblowing has been
passed by parliament in the measurement taken against corruption cases
which as one of the focus under second thrust of New Key Result Area
(NKRA) which is to combat the corruption in Malaysia with the hope that
indirectly, it will help attaining the first thrust of NKRA which is to eventually
reduce the criminal rate in Malaysia. This paper attempts to discuss the
retaliation sphere towards whistleblowing intentions in an organizational
setting. The research is conducted among 80 respondents from one of the
tertiary education institutions in Malaysia. Thus, with this research it is
hope that it would be a drive towards establishing ethical culture among
public servants to blow the whistle if they found any wrongdoings happend
in their surroundings.
