Employers should have a whistleblowing (protected disclosure) procedure for a worker to raise genuine concerns about a colleague’s conduct or the employer’s practices.
The procedure should allow for the worker to raise these concerns with a nominated person and set out the steps that the employer will take in response.
A disclosure will be protected if the employee reasonably believes that the disclosure is made in the public interest. Protections include the right not to be unfairly dismissed or to suffer a detriment for blowing the whistle.
