Abstract
Przeciwdziałanie nadużyciom i ich eliminowanie jest zadaniem niełatwym, gdyż różny i złożony może być mechanizm ich powstawania. O nadużyciach może decydować szereg zmiennych i ich interakcji, m.in. czynników sytuacyjnych, takich jak uwarunkowania kulturowe, gospodarcze, socjopolityczne, aktualna sytuacja organizacji i jej pracowników oraz wyznaczników dyspozycyjnych - psychologicznych cech, predyspozycji jednostek.(fragment tekstu)

Whistleblowing, defined as disclosure by organization members of illegal, immoral or illegitimate practices, which occur in the organization, is nowadays important subject of research, taking into account its impact on the functioning of the companies. Presented study is one of the first ones to raise this issue in the context of the Polish organizations. The aim of this study was to verify the existence of the relationship between prosociality and attitudes towards whistleblowing and to explore whether workers age may significantly change prosocial orientation and attitudes towards reporting irregularities. The study was conducted among 129 workers from different organizations. Results indicated that prosocially oriented employees have more positive attitudes towards whistleblowing than others. Further, attitudes towards whistleblowing varied in different age groups - the research showed that older employees (from age 40) have more positive attitudes than their younger coworkers (age range from 20 to 39). Outcomes of the study showed no significant relationship between age and prosociality, however, results indicate a trend, implying that prosociality varies in different age groups. Results of the study provide valuable suggestions for practice and further scientific work in this area. (author's abstract)
