Changes to whistleblower laws today - more lip service
Jun 25, 2013 — Here are key points of changes which came into force today:
1. Employees have to show that a disclosure is in the "public interest"
2. Employee's motivation is irrelevant in making the disclosure
3. Co-workers who victimise whistleblowers can be liable
4. Employers need to take reasonable steps to prevent (3) from happening to avoid liability for co-worker victimisation.
We think the changes don't go far enough. For more detailed analysis and interaction, please join the discussion on our Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/tellsafely
