Legislation reforms arriving 1 July 2018 significantly increases compliance obligations for corporate employers. For example:
- whistleblower protections will now be extended to former employees, contractors and company officers
- public companies and large private companies will need to have in place a Whistleblower Policy by January 2019
- disclosure that is eligible for protection can now be anonymous
- disclosing a whistleblower’s identity without their consent will now be an offence, and
- the current requirement that a disclosure is made in good faith will be removed.
McCullough Robertson and Grant Thornton Australia invite you to a breakfast seminar to learn what this means for corporate employers with key takeaways:
- understanding your increased compliance obligations
- determining whether a whistleblower’s disclosure is eligible for protection
- what you need to do to achieve compliance
- what a Whistleblower Policy needs to cover
- preparing your workforce for change, and
- how to respond to a whistleblower disclosure, from preliminary assessment to subsequent investigation.
Importantly, the seminar will demonstrate the impact of the law reform by reference to real-life case studies.
Please feel free to pass this invitation to relevant colleagues in your organisation.
We hope you can join us.
(Thursday) 7:45 am - 9:00 am
