To an outsider, whistleblowing looks like a complex issue – but the principle is very simple – you have knowledge of wrongdoing (usually criminal activity) and you want to uncover it.

You can whistleblow against any type of wrongdoing, but to help you, here are a few examples of some of the more common cases we have worked on.

Bribery

An individual is guilty of bribery when they receive, solicit or agrees to accept any benefit in kind with the understanding that the benefit provided will influence their action, judgement, opinion or vote.

Misconduct

An individual is guilty of misconduct when they knowingly refrain from performing their duty where their duty of clearly mandated their employer or by law. They could for example knowingly supress any health and safety issues that they uncover.

Conflict of Interest

An individual or business is guilty of a conflict of interest if they are involved in multiple interests (financial or otherwise), one of which could possibly corrupt the motivation of that individual or business.

These are just a few examples, but whistleblowing usually happens when there is a danger to the public, or the environment, or where there are safety issues that concerns employees in an organisation, or assaults on children and the elderly, or any financial malpractice.
