Businesses need to do as much as possible to protect themselves against financial crime, misconduct or ethical issues
Businesses need to protect themselves against financial crime or ethical issues.
With the recently enacted Protected Disclosures Act 2014, employers are expected to comply with the pan-sectoral legislative framework for the protection of whistleblowers. The legislation pays particular attention to protecting the identity of a whistleblower and the employer is required to take all reasonable steps to ensure confidentiality.
For more information on the act, please see our Protected Disclosures: Practical Steps for Employers brochure.
