Background :

A whistleblowing – or internal reporting – mechanism is a set of policies or procedures within an organisation which establish not just effective channels but comprehensive protection and support for reporting persons. By adopting an efficacious whistleblowing structure an organization or company can ensure to dissuade employees from indulging in unlawful activities, it would also enable the organization or the company to detect any wrongdoing in advance. An efficient whistleblowing structure would also enable the whistleblower to expose any kind of wrongdoing without any fear. “Whistleblower protection policies are also an imperative element of in-house controls, ethics and compliance program, which could exhibit to shareholders and law enforcement authorities that an organization has made efforts to thwart, detect and deal with dishonest behavior.” To understand this Bombay Chamber of Commerce & Industry organizing a webinar on Framework of Whistleblower Mechanism In India & Corporate Culture And Ethics
