Integrity Commission has received 22 disclosures from employees since the implementation of the Whistleblowers Act
The Integrity Commission has received 22 disclosures from employees, since the implementation of the Protected Disclosures or Whistleblowers Act, last year.
The Protected Disclosures Act facilitates employees making disclosures of improper conduct in the public’s interest.
It allows for the protection of the employee’s identity and grants them immunity from certain disciplinary proceedings.
Speaking at the Joint Select Committee reviewing the act, yesterday, Manager for Complaints and Protected Disclosures in the Information and Complaints division of the Integrity Commission, Debbie Gardner, noted that 15 complaints have been received so far this year.
