It is clear that current whistleblowing rules are not fit for purpose in the UK, argues Tony McClements, and that legislation needs beefing up.
The UK should follow the USA’s approach to incentivising whistleblowing says Tony McClements, head of investigations at MKS.
Whistleblowers are the Sword of Damocles hanging over the heads of those who are corrupt, or who may be tempted by corruption. Only those with something to hide need fear the whistleblower.
We need to have an effective whistleblower program to hang like a Sword of Damocles over those who think they can act dishonestly and with impunity, argues Martin Kenney.
