Is Whistle-blowing Compatible with Employee Loyalty
Transcript of Is Whistle-blowing Compatible with Employee Loyalty
Here's the Argument
Other's have argued this, saying that a new definition of loyalty, one which includes that being loyal also must mean promoting ethical behavior would justify whistle-blowing.
Let's Consider What Loyalty Literally Means
Webster's Online Dictionary-
1)Steadfast in allegiance or duty;
2)Inspired by love for your country;
3)Unwavering in devotion to friend or vow or cause.
These Are Not Connected
While loyalty may be a morally positive quality, loyalty does not mean requiring or promoting moral good.
Varelius says that as a general rule there's no reason to believe that employees can act as whistle-blowers and still remain loyal.
1)A feeling of strong love or loyalty: the quality of being devoted;
2)The use of time, money, energy, etc., for a particular purpose
A friend of yours could asks you to be his get-away driver so he can rob a convenience store. You can agree and comply, which will be considered being loyal, while not morally permissible.
Both Varelius and I think that it makes no sense to attempt to pair policing moral rightness with loyalty.
Snitches get stitches.
