Increasing number of employees in SA corporates stay mum on business misconduct

The South African Business Ethics survey has found that more than half of South Africans in the corporate world turn a blind eye to business misconduct.

Rossouw said although whistleblowers are protected by the law, the public should not have high expectations of being fully protected should employees speak out.

702's John Robbie spoke to CEO of the Ethics Institute of South Africa, Professor Deon Rossouw, regarding the matter.

Prof Deon Rossouw, CEO of the Ethics Institute of SA

The thing that we should be concerned about it the percentage of employees who observe misconduct and don't report it has also gone up.

Prof Deon Rossouw, CEO of the Ethics Institute of SA
