Submission: Protected Disclosures

The Council supports the Protected Disclosures (Protection of Whistleblowers) Bill and makes suggestions to strengthen it. The ability to ‘blow the whistle’ on wrongdoing within the public sector is an important check on the misuse of power. Protection of whistleblowers helps to ensure that government agencies and employees are following the law and honouring our rights as contained in our Bill of Rights and other laws. In the private sector, protection for whistleblowers is also crucial if we are to expose wrongdoing which affects our pensions, savings, healthcare, and other liberties.
