UNIT 2: WHISTLEBLOWING We read many stories about corruption often going on without the challenge of a consequence. These insights provide us with the invaluable insight of leaving us with feelings that we are not alone. Sometimes we are empowered with tools to fight against it. History accounts with exposing multi-million dollar corporate scam to malpractice with medicine. In the outcome of these scenarios we see individuals called whistleblowers playing a vital role in the reveal. Some even at times can save a life. In the United States we have laws protecting this group, but in some countries others carry serious personal risks and are seen as traitors. In the case study covered in this unit, we followed Jane a new manager hired to the Payroll Department for a family business. She was onbarded by Eddie the GM. As part of her initial tour, Jane met formally with the owner, Brad. Eddie provided her with a brief history regarding the separation of Jane’s predecessor. After three months of employment, Jane has made some observations for concern in the compensation area. There are some imbalances between the employees in the Service Desk, most specifically with an employee named Greg.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
