    A whistle-blower is an employee who reveals information that “calls attention to negligence, abuse or dangers that threaten the public interest” (Bok in Tavani 2012).

There are situations in which it is acceptable to leave some prima facie unfulfilled at the cost of others. For example, Bob has two friends: Sally and Tom. Bob and Sally have been friends since childhood and Tom joined the group in high school. Tom…
