Whistle Blowers: Saints or Sinners
1. Do you believe that whistle-blowing is good for organizations and its members, or is it,as David Stetler believes, often a means to extort financial gains from companies?
Is having strong ethics whether they are ethical orunethical practices makes it easier for a person to takeaction than for that person to process the making ofdecisions and choices for today's ethically workingenvironment?In this week's case "whistle blowing" is a new topicand issue for me in which I only heard of a few months ago.I heard of it through a discussion board from a previousclass in which students were trying to prevent employeesfrom revealing confidentiality and security from anorganization to others who were not suppose to have thisinformation. "Whistle blowing" was one of the solutions topreventing this act.I feel that in this case of Douglas Duran former VP ofsales for TAP, it was his good ethics and intuition tocorrect the wrongdoing of the organization while using theprecise process of decision-making and chose to go throughthe court system to punish the company for what they mayhave been doing towards the insurance company.
My reasoning is that Duran is innocent from unethicalpractices from extorting financial gains from TAP. Accordingto Senator Charles Grassley, "having informants report oncompany wrongdoings is the best way to prevent illegalactivity. There can never be enough bureaucrats todiscourage fraudulent use of taxpayer's money but knowingcolleagues might squeal can be deterrent" (Judge, 2007)p.179.The reason was for his innocence is there were 500boxes of evidence and the case settled. In addition, it costTAP over 1 billion dollars of legal fees to clear them ofall wrongdoing. David Stetler's, job as a defense attorneyis to defend whether the defendant is right or wrong.In this case, it clearly shows by its lesson that"whistle blowing" is good for an organization and those whoare unethical to "whistle blow" to extort money are mostlikely behaving with the same attitude as organizations whocommit unethical practices or crime.
. How might self-fulfilling prophecy affect a whistle-blower¶s search for incriminatingevidence against a company?
In the book Miracles it states, "That the Universal Lawis impartial and unemotional. It has no way of knowing what
