Whistleblowers laws: How to handle a protected disclosure
New Federal whistleblower laws commenced on 1 July 2019. How will your organisation handle and manage protected disclosures? Now might be an opportune time to review the procuredure surrounding whistleblower disclosures in your organisation - particularly as a failure to act on a disclosure can result in the matter being reported to the media or Parliament with potential reputational damage.
While the poor handling of disclosures can result in a culture of silence and lost opportunities for improvement, sound management of a disclosure can result in a more ethical culture. It can avoid reputational damage and prosecution for breach of the whistleblower laws.
