It looks like the White House’s system protects whistleblowers better than companies’ hotlines do. Harvard Business School professor Eugene Soltes tested the hotlines that companies should have in place, for employees to report wrongdoing. In many cases, these do not work or do not protect whistleblowers’ anonymity.
Also, according to the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, firms must have an anonymous reporting system to protect whistleblowers from being victimised after reporting. Despite this, regulators and auditors often DON’T check if hotlines actually keep whistleblowers anonymous.
