Protected Disclosures

The Protected Disclosures Act 2014 came into effect on 15 July 2014. It is frequently referred to as the 'whistleblowers' legislation. The Act aims to protect people who raise concerns about possible wrongdoing in the workplace. It provides for remedies, including compensation of up to five years' pay, for employees who are penalised for raising concerns about wrongdoing.
