Failure to report up

Some laws require you to tell the government stuff.

“Penn State Fined for Crime Reporting Lapses,” The Wall Street Journal, November 4, 2016 A2.  Federal law requires schools to report crimes correctly, and Penn State didn’t report various items about football coach Jerry Sandusky.

At common law, employees have a duty to their employer to report violations of company policy.  Most companies have a policy against violating law.  Do employees routinely do this?  Is this a major compliance gap?
