Abstract

The world all around is growing increasingly complex day by day. Decisions are constantly made that affect our safety, health, human and economic rights. More often than not these decisions are made by the sluggish, inept and corrupt of the individuals. Of late, there has been a significant upsurge in the recognition of the meaning and value of whistleblowing as a channel of unveiling information about illegal or unethical activities thus helping to take a positive step towards reduction of corruption. This article broadly speaks about whistleblowing in the United Kingdom.
