Fostering a culture of transparency and ethical behaviour can play a key role in protecting your business from insider threats and safeguarding valuable and sensitive data. Our Commercial Legal team has designed a Whistleblowing Policy for businesses who may not be legally required to have one but recognise the value of promoting a culture of accountability and trust.
Our Whistleblowing Policy sets out a clear framework for reporting internally on certain conduct. This policy can also guide your business on how to handle and respond to a whistleblower report within your organisation, including:
- Maintaining confidentiality;
- Responding to a report;
- Conducting investigations;
- Implementing post-investigation actions or recommendations; and
- Understanding whistleblower protections.
Should you require a tailored Whistleblowing Policy or a policy that is compliant with the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth), please contact the Commercial Legal team.
