What you Need to Know About the Proposed Changes to Whistleblower Protections and Risk Management

Whistleblowing is on the increase and has become even more prominent in recent times. For over a year now businesses have been on notice of Government plans to introduce new laws to protect and potentially reward whistleblowers. Whilst the new legislation is yet to be passed, now is the right time to prepare your organisation for the changes that will be coming.

Join us for an interactive panel session, in which we have asked Darren Murphy, Director and co-founder at Core Integrity and an expert in integrity risk management, to discuss with Christa Lenard, partner in our Labour, Employment and Workplace Safety team, how you can better protect your organisations' reputations and importantly, your employees, by better managing whistleblower complaints.

What we will cover:

  • What the proposed amendments mean and how they will impact your company regardless of its size
  • Why having an effective whistleblowing program is a key risk minimisation tool and good corporate governance
  • What types of roles and training your organisation needs to better deal with whistleblowing complaints?
  • When a whistleblower complaint is received - why it is not as simple as other workplace misconduct matters.
