New laws are shortly due to come into effect that will expand whistleblower protections and require public and large proprietary companies, and proprietary companies that are a trustee of a registerable superannuation entity, to have a compliant whistleblower policy in place by 1 January 2020.

Regardless of whether your organisation is caught by the new laws, in the interests of good governance and proactive leadership you should consider implementing a similar policy in your own organisation to support the detection of corporate wrongdoing and ensure whistleblowers are appropriately protected.

This webinar will cover:

  • Why now
  • What are the changes
  • Who it will impact
  • What an organisation’s whistleblower policy needs to cover
  • The importance of good governance in introducing your whistleblower policy
  • Penalties for non-compliance

These new amendments impose certain responsibilities on boards and introduce higher penalties for contravention and mismanagement. This important piece of law will have significant impact and potential ramifications across a wide range of areas.
