IN THIS SUMMARY

In The Corporate Whistleblower’s Survival Guide, Tom Devine and Tarek F. Maassarani offer guidance to private sector employees who are weighing the crucial decision on whether to blow the whistle on corporate malfeasance. The authors reveal all the hidden dangers of whistleblowing and how these risks should influence an employee’s decision to act. Along with the dangers, they detail survival strategies on how to best uncover wrongdoing in ways that will not jeopardize one’s career. The strategies include ascertaining the most effective way to reveal wrongdoing—internally, to regulatory agencies, or the media—and ways to recruit allies to the cause. The authors make recommendations for legislative and corporate reform and offer direction for leaders who know that to remain silent is ultimately bad for business because it can cover up an impending but sometimes avoidable catastrophe.
