Are you prepared for managing a whistleblower complaint? From 1 July 2019, Australian companies must give protection to whistleblower employees and they have until the end of 2019 to introduce a compliant and comprehensive whistleblower policy. If you fail to comply with the new laws, it’s a criminal offence with tough civil and criminal penalties for disclosing the identity or victimising a whistleblower.

You need to be prepared to manage a whistleblower complaint if you are:

  • a senior manager
  • responsible for organisation wellbeing and culture or governance
  • managing direct reports.

A complaint could be a simple case of fraud, misappropriation or a behavioural complaint. Or, it could be a complex issue that unearths systemic problems within the organisation that requires a more long-term and thorough investigation to resolve.

Learning outcomes

This webinar will explore:

  • the new legal framework and how to comply
  • best practice whistleblower policies
  • key steps you should follow when managing a whistleblower complaint
  • how technology can be leveraged to uncover lines of inquiry and facts quickly and efficiently.

It’s time to establish a rigorous whistleblower action plan. Join this webinar to find out how.
