This timely and important book assesses the impact of legislation on public interest disclosures internationally, as well as setting an agenda for future research on whistleblowing. Combining both theoretical and practical methods, this unique book offers a detailed examination of some of the key statutory provisions in the UK and explores the way courts have interpreted them. The expert contributors compare the UK model with the different approaches taken in Australia, the US as well as the rest of Europe, and focus on the lessons that can be learned from the current practice of whistleblowing. They evaluate the contents and application of confidential reporting/whistleblowing procedures, and draw upon significant empirical research. This book will be of great interest to academics, postgraduate students, practitioners and policymakers in the fields of employment law, human resource management, business ethics and corporate governance.
