About this course

By providing a whistleblowing policy, employees of an organisation can feel confident in reporting unethical conduct, dishonest or illegal activity. There are state and federal laws that protect whistleblowers.

Safetrac’s ‘Whistleblower’ Course provides an overview of an organisation’s whistleblowing policy and the protections provided to those who make disclosures covered by amendments contained in Treasury Laws Amendment (Enhancing Whistleblower Protections) Act 2019.

It is designed to promote a culture of honesty and ethical behaviour to ensure that employees are proactive in asking questions, understand how to report misconduct and how their complaints are dealt with.
