Whistle-blowing is considered the most effective and practical fraud detection mechanism, provided an efficient reporting channel within an organization is in place and has already been systematically implemented. This mechanism when implemented will encourage and ensure that more people will come forward without fear or favour to report incidences of misconduct by the staff and others connected with them and subsequently refer them to the rightfully authority for further action to be taken. This will enable the organisation concerned to rectify the wrong doings by taking immediate and effective action thereby minimizing damages which will tarnish the name of the organisation and losses in the long run. An efficient corporate whistle-blowing management should ensure a safe and secured reporting channel to receive tip-offs from a minor to complex issues of misconduct including corporate-changing deeds of bad behaviour or leadership to uphold the core corporate principles such as accountability, responsibility, fairness and transparency of corporate governance in conducting business. The Whistleblower Protection Act 2010 in Malaysia is a law that empowers the employees from retaliatory action for voluntarily disclosing information about dishonest or unlawful activities occurring at a workplace/organization. The Act provides frameworks which are essential tools to help maintain a safe workplace and to inculcate a culture of integrity in order to uphold the core principles of an organization, towards the implementation of a good corporate governance culture.
