34% of employees have express knowledge of workplace misconduct

Labaton Sucharow survey also finds that more than half of respondents are unaware of SEC’s whistleblower program

Labaton Sucharow announced the results of its Ethics and Action Survey yesterday, presenting significant findings on Americans and their decisions regarding wrongdoing in the workplace.

Conducted by ORC International in November, the survey questioned about 1,000 Americans on their knowledge of wrongdoing and their willingness to report it. Among its key findings, the survey concluded that 34 percent of the respondents have witnessed or had firsthand knowledge of wrongdoing in the workplace. Seventy-eight percent of those surveyed also said they would report misconduct, but only if the reporting could be done anonymously, without retaliation and result in a monetary reward.
