Whistle-blower protections

New and comprehensive whistle-blower protection reforms applying to private sector corporations are currently in draft federal legislation, are bi-partisan and are likely to soon become law.

The first operative ‘hard’ date of 1 July 2018 is fast approaching. The expected reforms will apply to disclosures on or after this date (including repetition of disclosures made earlier, and disclosure of conduct prior to that time), and new whistleblower compensation and enhanced protection will be available regardless of when a disclosure was made.
