What is whistleblowing?

The term whistleblowing can be defined as raising a concern about a wrong doing within an organisation. The concern must be a genuine concern about a crime, criminal offence, miscarriage of justice, dangers to health and safety and of the environment – And the cover up of any of these.

Are you sure this isn't another sex thread Karen?

It may contain images of someone putting their lips around something and giving it a good blow.

If you work in bomb disposal or brain surgery then someone blowing a whistle may have catastrophic results.

Courtesy of urbandictionary.com:

slang for the action of giving head.   

 

On this basis, I'm not sure that it's terribly appropriate to 'blow the whistle' at work Karen.

Unless you work in the porn industry.

Or you're trying to quickly work your way up the corporate ladder I suppose, in which case it may be of great benefit.

Brings a whole new meaning to 'whistle while you work'!

Whistle blowing is good but like all good things can be used wrongly. American companies have fairly strong ethical policies with confidential phone lines for reporting, I have seen this cynically used to undermine people

Karen - could you investigate 'filibustering' next ?

As usual, the urban dictionary definition is much more entertaining:
