Money not major incentive for whistle-blowers-study


In a new study conducted by the NEJM, researches concluded that most whistleblowers blow the whistle out of a desire to do the right thing as opposed to monetary gain.

26 whistleblowers were interviewed and 17 cases of pharmaceutical whistleblowing were studied.

“The whistle-blowers need more support in the process of bringing the case forward,” Dr. Aaron Kesselheim of Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston said in a telephone interview.

In addition, the study also shows that most whistleblowers suffered some sort of backlash from their employers, which is no surprise.
