Assume that you work for one of the organizations that was the subject of the whistleblower complaint (see below). The directors of the organization want to eliminate the barriers to reporting issues, address concerns immediately, and thus avoid future embarrassing and costly whistleblower claims. In a 1-2 page paper, give a very brief overview of the matter, identify barriers to whistleblowing in the organization, and ways to overcome those barriers. Determine whether competition played a role in the unethical behavior or hindered potential whistleblowers. Give your recommendations for an updated whistleblower policy.
Read the following articles, and select the organization you want to focus on.
