Solution Description

Analyze the duty of loyalty in whistleblower cases to determine to whom loyalty is owed and who shows the greater duty of loyalty. Support your analysis with specific examples. Then, suggest at least one (1) change to an existing law.

A whistleblower is a person who shows loyalty to their employer by giving up valuable information about a coworker or sometimes even a friend. I believe in these types of situations no one wins because the person who was unethical may receive sympathy votes depending on how unethical the act was, while the whistleblower might be shamed by the remaining coworkers who feel that this person is some kind of a traitor to the staff and fellow colleagues. They may feel that the whistleblower is trying to make more friends up top by stepping on everyone at the bottom and this type of behavior doesn’t sit well with most people. For example, if a person overheard another person talking and the person said that they were going to blow up the company the person has every right to notify the proper authorities. By doing this he/she will become a hero but if the tables were turned and both people were running for the same job and one person opted to make the other one look bad amongst fellow employees by doing and saying degrading things about them. The whistleblower is the person being harassed, they go and tell on the person and that person is terminated from the running and the other person automatically wins. Now this could be a potential problem for the new leader because now no one will respect him/her because they will be looked at as not being loyal or as a traitor for telling. One change to this existing law could be for the company to have anonymous tips for the company without ever having to mention your name this way no one knows that there was even a whistleblower to begin with.

Reexamine the Citizens United decision in Chapter 1, and determine which of the following groups has the greatest free speech rights: corporations, public employees, or private employees. Provide a rationale for your determination.

The United States Constitution 1st Amendment states that people have the freedom of speech. When it comes to public and private sectors that amendment is limited and may have new clauses enforced especially on social med
