Alphabet shareholder pushes Google to strengthen whistleblower protections

Trillium Asset Management is pushing Google to adopt better whistleblower protections. The $3.5 billion investment firm has filed a shareholder resolution asking the board of directors for a third-party review of current policies. The sentiment is echoed by the Alphabet Workers Union, which launched in January in part to protect employees and contractors from retaliation. Trillium and Open MIC organized a similar proposal in 2020 but were shot down. At the time, the board said it believed Google’s current policies were adequate. The proposal is based on the still-radical idea that whistleblowers are good for business.
