Whistleblowing: legislation is just part of the picture
As stories about whistleblowing and its consequences dominate international headlines, work is underway to review New Zealand’s whistleblowing legislation. Chief Ombudsman Peter Boshier sets out the nuts and bolts of the Protected Disclosures Act 2000, and why we need to lift our game in both awareness and practice.
You can read what Peter has to say about the Act, the need for reform and for greater awareness, and the protections that are available to us, in the attached article.
The article also includes helpful links for guidance on how to make a protected disclosure, and on internal policies and procedures for organsations.
