An interview with whistleblower experts Stephen M. Kohn and Mark Worth was shown at the meeting and can be viewed above. Kohn and Worth were interviewed by the Coalition’s Regional Coordinator for Latin America and the Caribbean who then cut and subtitled the video to allow both English and Spanish-speaking members to understand the interview.
Kohn and Worth begin the interview by noting that Latin America is lagging behind the rest of the world in whistleblower protection laws. While Worth highlights recent legal advances in Peru, Jamaica and Chile, he claims that these are not fully comprehensive whistleblower protection laws.
After overviewing the current state of whistleblower laws in Latin America, Kohn and Worth next explain the best practices for whistleblower laws. They further detail the ways that the United States’ whistleblower reward programs effectively incentivize and protect whistleblowers.
