Name of the student Professor’s name Subject Date Whistleblowing and the Environment Part 1 Is it morally permissible for Chantale to blow the whistle? Why or why not? Chantale is not morally permissible to undertake the act of whistleblowing as she does not fully exploit the internal means before resorting to the eternal one which is the media. Before an individual’s case gets termed as morally permitted it has to meet the following conditions. First an issue is morally permissible if the employee in question discovers that the action by the organization will result in adverse harm either to the employees or the public whether in the person of the user innocent individuals or the general public (Mintz) . In Chantale’s case the act of dumping the hospital waste in the municipal region by the Avco Environmental organization stands to pollute the environment which will in turn harm the health is likelihood that they will match to the court of law and have the company face legal action. Even worse the employer advised the employee who is Ginny to go to the extent of dressing inappropriately to attract profit to the company by drawing the attention and contracts from the prospective firms that require advertising of their products and services. The employer should engage in activities that are not self-centered regarding profits to the firm but to as well as that of the clients. Works Cited Legal Information Institute.
