The issue of financial rewards for whistleblower rewards have caused much debate, and some controversy.  Panelists Aiyesha Dey and Jonas Heese co-authored the 2021 article, 'Cash-for-Information Whistleblower Programs: Effects on Whistleblowing and Consequences for Whistleblowers'. This article specifically looked at how financial incentives affect a whistleblower’s decision to report misconduct and if the potential consequences could be supplemented by a financial reward.

The panel will discuss article and its findings, generating conversations around whistleblower incentives and their effectiveness in attracting people willing to speak out.
