This paper, derived from a conference presentation, discusses corporate fraud and the role that ‘whistleblowing’ can play in combating malpractice. It examines why employees have been reluctant to ‘blow the whistle’ and goes on to suggest how employers can provide alternative ways for staff to raise their concerns. It concludes by looking at the impact of the ‘whistle‐blower protection’ offered by the Public Interest Disclosure Act 1999.
