whistleIn a recent University of Chicago study, researchers determined (again) that whistleblowers are the best tool for fighting corporate fraud. One unfortunate, but not surprising, finding was that  of whistleblowers whose identity was revealed, 82% of them were either forced from their position or quit under duress.

This new research comes on the heels of another study done by Price Waterhouse which found that whistleblowers expose more fraud than anyone, including corporate auditors or the SEC.
