LEG500 week 2 Discussions
Analyzing the duty of loyalty in whistle blowing I believed that there is a duty of the employee to the corporation. The example given “...if the whistleblowing employee report the evidence of wrongdoing immediately to law enforcement authorities, she may be violating her duty to loyalty to the corporation…she has an obligation to protect certain proprietary and confidential corporate information”(Leonard M. Baynes 2002) is the reason I feel loyalty lies with the corporation. The Sarbanes- Oxley Act should be broaden in terms of including other industries. The example given is Baynes’s analysis of Corporate Whistleblowers, low level employees aren’t protected.
