Abstract

Whistleblowing is considered as one of the best w ays to discover corruption and other organizational misconducts. In western countries like U.S, around 46% of fraud cases were discovered due to whistleblowers (Wan Jan,2017). Whistleblowing is defined as “the disclosure by organization members of an emplo yer’s illegal, immoral, or illegitimate practices that are under control of their employers to persons or organizations who may be able to effect action” (Near & Miceli, 1985, p. 4). Therefore, whistleblowers are persons who are aware of such practices and internally report the practices to upper management or externally disclose the practices to regulators or media (Moy, 2018).
