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
