Webinar Title:
Research Admin turned Whistleblower (Archive)
Webinar Date:
Webinar Time:
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EDT
Research administrators work in two worlds. They have obligations as employees in their research institutes and could be faced with breaches of conduct by their employer, the research institute, while research administrators also have obligations to facilitate the conduct of research and could be faced with breaches in the conduct of research by scientists or research staff. Different legal frameworks apply to blowing the whistle in these two scenarios. Within this context, this webinar will explore what it means to be a whistleblower, what obligations there might be to blow the whistle (legally or ethically) and what protections are available for whistleblowers.
