Whistleblowers After Disclosure: Financial Impacts, Career Paths, and Survival Strategies
Whistleblowers perform a vital role in society, alerting the public to financial fraud, abuse in institutions and potential environmental disasters. But many genuine whistleblowers find themselves without a source of income and with little prospect of sourcing further work in their chosen career. If this situation does not change, fewer and fewer whistleblowers will come forward.

In an 18-month study between 2016 and 2018 our team interviewed 58 whistleblowers and 17 experts, and gathered quantitative data from a survey of 92 whistleblowers who had left their current role as a result of speaking out.
Our research produced: evidence of the financial impacts of disclosure, detailed analysis of personal costs, reported benefits of having spoken out in accordance with personal values, and insights into gaining meaningful employment after leaving the organization due to whistleblowing. In addition our study yields key recommendations to ensure that those who sacrifice much for society’s protection are better supported. Working with people who have found themselves in this situation, we created short and accessible summaries of people’s post-disclosure career stories.

Our research was supported by UK’s ESRC and findings are available on www.whistleblowingimpact.org.
