Rights & Protections Afforded to Whistleblowers

In this video, we have built upon our understanding of whistleblowing by exploring what specific protections are in place and who exactly they are aimed at, with a particular emphasis on maintaining whistleblowers’ anonymity.
Overview

Whistleblowing has a vast number of protections and legislation surrounding it. Legislative protections are far reaching, from employees to agency workers and freelancers. It is vital that firms and potential whistleblowers have a firm grasp of what is defined as a ‘protected disclosure’ as this will ensure that they have access to their full rights as a whistleblower. This requires a full understanding of how information should be disclosed, how to disclose to the correct party and legal frameworks surrounding anonymity.

Key learning objectives:

  • Learn what protections are in place for whistleblowers and who is protected

  • Understand what types of disclosures are protected

  • Recognise the legal frameworks around anonymity
