Across all sectors, employers are increasingly expected to have robust procedures in place to encourage whistleblowing disclosures as a way of promoting openness and transparency.
Businesses now need to be much more aware of their obligations, particularly in recognising whistleblowing disclosures and ensuring the correct steps are taken to properly address them.
In this webinar we will consider:
- How to recognise a protected disclosure, and the impact of having a policy that goes beyond just the legal categories.
- What steps should a business take on receiving a whistleblowing complaint?
- What are the regulatory, governance and reporting expectations in whistleblowing cases.
- The Government’s Review of the whistleblowing framework – is it still fit for purpose?
