A companion book to Whistleblowing: Managing Dissent in the Workplace by the same authors, this study explains and answers the methodological and moral questions they confronted during their research on whistleblowing. In the course of conducting the case study research, a series of tantalizing and troublesome theoretical questions arose: What is whistleblowing and how can its success or failure be judged? How can various theories about organizational behavior be used to predict where whistleblowing is most likely to occur? The data gathered were analzyed from four different perspectives: legal, strategic, sociological, and ethical. The authors were then able to formulate and test 31 hypotheses about when whistleblowing is likely to occur, and what factors make it likely to be proved effective. The authors raise various moral quesitons about different forms of dissent and their justification.
