A Comparison of the Whistle-blower Law in U.S. & Taiwan
About the Presentation
Some believe that in practice the white-collar crime is the hardest for a prosecutor. If the employee in the company or employer who is doing misconduct can tell us the happening crime to be a whistleblower, it will help us a lot to investigate or stop the misconduct. As a result,the whistleblower law which is designed to protect these whistleblowers is very important. The law in Taiwan is still a draft, but there are some difficulties to operate in practice. We hope to perfect the law to operate in Taiwan.
