Event Details

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.
