Event Summary

The law in relation to whistleblowing has recently undergone a number of important changes, which affect both the scope of potential liabilities faced by employers and the standards that will be applied to employees seeking the protection of the legislation.

Recent high profile controversies demonstrate the very profound risks faced by organisations that fail to create a culture of openness and responsiveness in relation to legitimate employee concerns. Equally, not all disclosures are made in the public interest. The legislation is often used for ulterior motives and at great cost.

This in-depth seminar is designed to provide delegates with a clear and practical understanding of the law.

Delegates will participate in practical workshops which will bridge the gap between theory and practice.
