Good Governance and Whistleblowing: A Case Study of a Higher Education Institution

N. Dorasamy and S. Pillay    

Abstract: The study proposes to explore the attitudes of employees toward the Protected Disclosures Act (2000) in providing protection to whistleblowers. It seeks to examine the extent to which employees are encouraged to blow the whistle at higher education institutions despite legislation which protects disclosures made in good faith. The assessment is conducted in the light of empirical research conducted at a higher education institution, against literature gleaned on whistleblower legislation and its impact on good governance. The research was limited to the Durban University of Technology a higher education institution in South Africa and may not produce the same findings at other similar higher education institutions. A conceptual framework informed by legislation, policy and procedures and organizational culture was used to determine employee perceptions of whistleblower protection within higher education institutions. In the light of this research, recommendations are made to promote a culture of whistleblowing.
