Is your business compliant with the law?
There are now legal requirements for most businesses to have whistleblower avenues in place and ensure whistleblower protection when receiving, managing and investigating reports.
The following list is not exhaustive:
For public sector there is a range of legislation applicable for government and has been for many years covering protected disclosures and whistleblower protection requirements.
For companies governed by the Corporations Act, there is new Whistleblower legislation passed by the Commonwealth Parliament for the private sector, called the Treasury Laws Amendment (Enhancing Whistleblower Protections) Act 2019, which significantly expands the scope of the protected disclosures under the Corporations Act regime.
