Whistleblowers have begun to receive more attention and media coverage over the years. In 2002, Time magazine awarded “Persons of the Year” to three whistleblowers in honor of their efforts to expose scandals involving WorldCom, Enron, and the FBI.
According to a recent New England Journal of Medicine study, whistleblowers often pay a substantial personal price. Nearly 82% of whistleblowers experienced retaliation in the workplace as a direct result for bringing to light that which had previously been unreported whistleblowers are also subjected to social ostracism from coworkers, and undergo tremendous psychological strain.
