Whistleblowing

The act of a worker (or "whistleblower") making a qualifying disclosure, in good faith, to an employer, regulator, legal adviser, minister or other responsible or prescribed person about a dangerous or illegal activity or omission. In these circumstances and subject to fulfilling certain criteria, it will be a protected disclosure and the whistleblower will be protected from being dismissed or subjected to a detriment because of the disclosure.

Employers should have a compliant whistleblowing policy
