IMO they should be far more strongly protected by law, whether their revelations are in business, politics, sexual abuse, or any other area.

Also, if/when their allegations are proven, there should be severe penalties against any future attempt at blacklisting them.

I agree, especially in Local Gov where your reward is to get fired.

I agree with the general principle. The problem lies in defining exactly where the protection applies. Protection for whistleblowers who expose illegal acts by their employer should be straightforward. What, though, about people who expose incompetence?

I assume this has been inspired by Carillion. If so, how practical is it to protect employees who suspect that things are going wrong? Should there be a way for them to be able to express their concerns to the auditors without fearing repercussions?

Actually it wasn't - it's something I've been musing on for a long time.
