About this Webinar
On the 12 October 2022, the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform, Michael McGrath, signed the Commencement Order for the Protected Disclosures Amendment Act (the “2022 Act”) which will take effect in its entirety from 1st January 2023.
The Act will, among other things, require public sector employers and prescribed persons to revise and update their procedures and channels for receiving protected disclosures. In particular, the Act requires that protected disclosures be acknowledged and diligently followed-up on and that feedback be given to the reporting person. The new guidance is intended to support public bodies in meeting their obligations in this regard.
This webinar will explore:
- The strict new requirements for public and private sector employers;
- Other practical changes coming down the tracks;
- Implications for managing whistleblower reports and investigations; and
- Steps to start preparing now
Who Should Attend:
All public sector organisations and private businesses subject to the new legislation and any prescribed persons receiving Protected Disclosures who should be aware of their responsibilities & obligations under the legislation.
Clara Gleeson, Solicitor, A&L Goodbody.
