Send us a Text Message.

What is whistleblowing, and how does it play a role in exposing corruption within organizations? Can whistleblowers face legal consequences for making accusations against their colleagues or superiors? What distinguishes legitimate whistleblowing from damaging accusations, as highlighted in the Singapore case?

In this episode, Jonathan talks about a recent Singapore case, where the High Court ordered a man who blew the whistle on his company's executive director to pay $50,000 in defamation compensation. This case is a stark reminder that whistle-blowing doesn't give individuals a free pass to tarnish colleagues they dislike.
