Abstract

The objective of this study is to examine the extent of encouraging factors of whistleblowing intention in the public sector organisations in Malaysia, particularly in the selected case study organisation. The survey questionnaire was adopted to explore what are the factors that would encourage whistleblowing in this selected public sector organisation. Research questions such as to what extent do predictive factors such as 1) Consequences of Wrongdoing, 2) Management Reaction to the Report and 3) Witness Protection have to be addressed in understanding the whistleblowing behaviour. The consequences of wrongdoings were found as a predictive variable of whistleblowing intention in this selected case study organisation.
