Whistleblowing Policy Free Samples PDF | Word

This Whistleblowing Policy establishes a clear policy within your organisation to ensure compliance with the Public Interest Disclosure Act 1998.

The Public Interest Disclosure Act 1998 provides all employees with employment protection if they disclose information of wrongdoing within their organisation.

The policy requests that any such information should be disclosed internally first to a suitable member of the management. The policy goes on to detail protection given to employees who disclose such information.

The policy also states that disciplinary action will be taken against those employees who seek to prevent or cover-up any such disclosure. As a safeguard the policy also provides for disciplinary action against employees who knowingly make false disclosures.

Clauses in this policy:

  • List of what constitutes wrongdoing.
  • Instructions on reporting.
  • Investigation of reports.
  • Protection for disclosing party.
  • Disciplinary action for knowingly making false disclosures.
  • Statement of employees legal duty to disclose information of wrongdoing.

All organisations should have such a policy in place to show that they comply with the Public Interest Disclosure Act 1998.
