Paying People to do the Right Thing:
The pros and cons of adopting US-style whistleblower rewards programmes.
Should there be a financial reward for whistleblowing? Does this encourage speaking out or is it an effective shortcut for regulators? Does it create a system where money and not the public interest is the motivation? A whistleblowing reward approach is common in the USA, but largely resisted in Europe, what are the pros and cons of both systems.
Join us on the 23rd June at 2:30PM for a Protect and WIN online World Whistleblowers Day webinar where Professor Giancarlo Spagnolo and Professor Wim Vanderkerkhove discuss these questions in more depth with WIN Executive Director, Anna Myers. The discussion will be facilitated by Elizabeth Gardiner, CEO Protect
The event will be a short presentation of the pros and cons of rewards system, and then we’ll invite questions from the audience. If you’re a whistleblower with a strong view on this subject, we’d love to hear from you. Perhaps you’re a regulator with a particular interest or an employer who already offers rewards? Anyone wanting to submit questions in advance can do so here and we’ll try to ask the panel as many as we can.
