Employee Whistleblowers: Employers Want First Crack At You

Employees who want to blow the whistle on their employers might first have to talk all that over with their employers, reports the New York Post. Yes, you read right.

That's exactly the procedure companies like Wal-Mart are asking, through their law firms, the Securities and Exchange Commission [SEC] to implement. Before employees sing like a bird to the SEC, large corporations want them to present their accusations internally to company representatives. Mmmmm. Doesn't that sound like being required to inform an alleged thief that you are turning him/her in as a thief before you actually turn him/her in? And doesn't that seem a dangerous and downright dumb thing to do?
