Acting for You, February 2018

Whistleblowing (draft bill) released

The government introduced the Treasury Laws Amendment (Enhancing Whistleblower Protections) Bill 2017 into parliament at the beginning of December 2017. Intended to consolidate the whistleblower protections in the corporate, financial and credit sectors into a single regime under the Corporations Act 2001, the bill follows the release of exposure draft legislation for consultation in October 2017. The intended effective date is 1 July 2018 but it is proposed that organisations will have until 1 January 2019 to introduce a whistleblower policy that complies with the requirements in the bill.
