Not so. If your employer requires you to "blow the whistle" it is on wrong practices, not the institution. You are being loyal, supportive and faithful to that institution if you obey your employer's requirements.
You are the one that raised Matthew 18. This specific text pertains to internal church relationships not employer/employee relationships. I merely alluded to the fact that your reference would be an irrelevancy unless it was a church situation.

Objectively, 1. Reporting the TRUTH is no violation of the ninth commandment against bearing FALSE witness. 2. As an employee your DUTY is to your employer. If your employer asks you to report violations of company rules that is in no way a violation of Mt 18. Were you employed by a church?
