This Whistleblower Policy is a document that forms part of a business’s HR and employment policies. It sets out the responsibilities and obligations that an employee must follow when dealing with whistleblower situations.
This policy has been updated to reflect the amendments made to the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) and Taxation Administration Act 1953 (Cth), which came into effect on 1 July 2019. Under these changes, public and large proprietary companies must have a complaint whistleblower policy by 1 January 2020. It is unlikely that any existing policies will comply with these new laws and therefore you must switch to an updated version to avoid any penalties.
Use this Whistleblower Policy if:
Your business would like to inform employees about responsibilities and duties around whistleblower procedures.
Why do I need a Whistleblower Policy?
Clearly inform your employees about the procedures and responsibilities surrounding whistleblowing. This encourages your employees to report any allegations of misconduct by providing protection to these employees.
What does this Whistleblower Policy cover?
Behaviours, practices or events that are reportable
Protection of the whistleblower
Reporting and subsequent procedures
Internal and external investigation
Special protections under the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth)
