The choice to become a whistleblower is not easy. It is associated with a lot of fears such as potential loss of employment and the impact it has on one’s personal life. But when a potential whistleblower feels so much fear to act on the misconduct of his organization, it is the entire society that suffers. “Whistleblowers are invaluable in exposing corruption, fraud and mismanagement.” In this article we have covered in detail the definitions, ingredients of Whistleblowing along with the various legislations that protect the Whistleblowers across the globe and deals with various case studies of Whistleblowing. Through this article we aim to bring to light how even though there are so many efforts made to protect the Whistleblowers there is still a long way to go in empowering them to come out without fear.
