The Ethics of Corporate Whistleblowing Rewards

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Abstract Corporate whistleblowing regulation has experienced rapid evolution in a number of significant jurisdictions in recent years, most notably in the United States. One of the most controversial aspects of contemporary reform in corporate whistleblowing regimes is the debate over whether or not to introduce whistleblowing rewards or ‘bounties’. This chapter considers the ethical analysis that can be brought to bear in relation to the offering of corporate whistleblowing rewards, and how that might assist in ensuring that rewards have a place in an effective corporate whistleblowing regulatory environment.
