The Royal Commissions into Financial Services and Aged Care Quality and Safety have uncovered a range of stories from employees, consumers and families who have raised concerns about processes, fairness, wrongdoing and quality of service received. New laws are shortly due to come into effect that will expand whistleblower protections and require public and large proprietary companies, and proprietary companies that are a trustee of a registerable superannuation entity, to have a compliant whistleblower policy in place by 1 January 2020.

Regardless of whether your organisation is caught by the new laws, in the interests of good governance and proactive leadership you should consider implementing a similar policy in your own organisation to support the detection of corporate wrongdoing and ensure whistleblowers are appropriately protected.

This webinar will cover:

  • Why now?
  • What are the changes?
  • Who it will impact?
  • What an organisation’s whistleblower policy needs to cover.
  • The importance of good governance in introducing your whistleblower policy.
  • Penalties for non-compliance.

These new amendments impose certain responsibilities on boards and introduce higher penalties for contravention and mismanagement. This important piece of law will have significant impact and potential ramifications across a wide range of areas.
