Whistleblower Compliance and Protection

A wide range of Australian law mandates whistleblower protection

The law requires public companies and large proprietary companies to have a whistleblower policy compliant with the legislative requirements.

Failure to comply with these whistleblower laws can amount to an offence.

Our expertise has grown out of advising some of Australia’s leading organisations on their whistleblower policies and how to manage whistleblower reports in compliance with the legislative protections.
