Over the years, organisation wrongdoing cases across the world have increased and are expected to continue to occur in the future. Whistle-blowing has been identified as a source of information on wrongdoings or questionable practices that have occurred in organisation. Whistle-blowing is increasingly important in many societies and encouraging whistle-blowing practice is one of the ways organisations portray good governance. The lack of whistle-blowing theory, to date, has seen many previous whistle-blowing studies used behavioral theories in their study. The objective of this paper is to discuss, first, the applicability of theory of planned behavior in investigating whistle-blowing intention, and, second, the recent debate on the theory of planned behavior.
