Why does your business need a Whistleblower Policy?

When an employee notices or suspects illegal misconduct within your business, it is critical to have a Whistleblower Policy which provides guidance on how a whistleblower can be protected and how a whistleblower should report suspected or actual misconduct.

In Australia, your business requirement to protect a whistleblower is governed by the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth), the Australian Securities and Investment Commission (‘ASIC’), and the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (‘APRA’).

This legislation provides a safe, supportive and confidential environment where a whistleblower can report misconduct without repercussions.

This policy outlines practices for how your business can maintain a whistleblower’s confidentiality, provide the whistleblower with support, and handle reporting internally and confidentially.
