  • 5. Problem identification whether the whistle blower is a saint or sinner for an organization? • PROS: Whistle-blowers keep companies honest. It is a strong means to deter company wrong doings. In fact, if we had more whistleblowers there may not have been the economic crisis caused by all sorts of bad behavior in the banking and lending sector. Top management needs to encourage whistle-blowing by employees when they see unethical practices. • CONS : At times it could become absolute a form of extortion. In the TAP case, it looks like Durand did not do his homework and address his concerns appropriately. 30% of the fine is a little high. We can discourage false whistleblowers with a more fair compensation policy.
  • 6.

  • 10. Who is Douglas Durand • Douglas Durand is the paragon of a corporate whistleblower. Shortly after stepping in as vice president of sales at TAP Pharmaceutical Products in early 1995, he began to suspect the company was conspiring with doctors to overcharge the U.S. government’s Medicare program by tens of millions of dollars.
  • 11. Products • TAP had several marketed products selling within the United States: • PREVACID (lansoprazole) • Lupron Depot (leuprolide) • Rozerem • FAMVIR • KAPIDEX
  • 12. Case study on Whistleblowers saints or sinners? Douglas Durand, former Vice President of sales at TAP Pharmaceutical products He decided to blow whistle on TAP for collecting 2% fee from doctor as “Administrative Costs” which was a kickback Next he and Ainslie again built a case against TAP . He received bonus of $35,000 from TAP He quit the company. HE collected 500 boxes of documents containing evidences against TAP. Finally TAP settled the issue in 2001 & Durand’s take was $126 millions But, Prosecutors filed criminal fraud against TAP to send a strong signal to pharmaceutical industry. Then the holes in Durand’s story came to know - The kick backs of Durand never occurred. Bribing of Doctors into using their Drugs was actually paid by Doctors themselves. Boston Federal Jury cleared of all charges. Durand was now retired.

O – He had the opportunity to stop the company from involving in unethical or illegal activity and get a big amount of money. T – He will never be appointed by any other company in future.
  • 15. Conclusion • In this case of Douglas Durand former VP of sales for TAP, it was his good ethics and intuition to correct the wrongdoing of the organization while using the precise process of decision-making and chose to go through the court system to punish the company for what they have doing illegally. The reasoning is that having informants report on company wrongdoings is the best way to prevent illegal activity. The reason was for his innocence is there were 500 boxes of evidence and the case settled. In addition, it cost TAP over 1 billion dollars of legal fees to clear them of all wrongdoing.
  • 16. Question Answer
  • 17. Question Answer Q.1) Do you believe that whistle-blowing is good for organizations and its members, or is it, as David Stetler believes, often a means to extort large financial gains from companies? Q.2) How might the self-fulfilling prophecy affect a whistle-blower’s search for incriminating evidence against a company?
  • 18. Question Answer Q.3) When frivolous lawsuits occur, how might these cases affect future whistle blowers who have a valid legal claim against their company? Would they be more or less likely to come forward? How might their claims be evaluated? What should companies and the government do to prevent frivolous lawsuits? Q.4) Do you believe that employee of a company have an ethical obligation to first attempt to report wrongdoings to member of the company itself, or should they go straight to the authorities when they suspect illegal activity?
