It is vital to include a comprehensive Whistleblower Policy to protect and encourage employees to speak up and report actual or suspected misconduct.

This Whistleblower Policy Template communicates the process for reporting actual and suspected misconduct to the relevant officers while providing confidentiality and support.

The Whistleblower Policy Template includes:

  • A general overview including the scope, application and purpose of the policy
  • A description of who is eligible to be a whistleblower
  • A description of reportable conduct
  • Obligations of workers, including an obligation to report misconduct
  • Information on how to report misconduct within your business
  • Whistleblower rights and protections
  • Report handling and protection guidelines

Why does your business need a Whistleblower Policy?

When an employee notices or suspects illegal misconduct within your business, it is critical to have a Whistleblower Policy which provides guidance on how a whistleblower can be protected and how a whistleblower should report suspected or actual misconduct.

In Australia, your business requirement to protect a whistleblower is governed by the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth), the Australian Securities and Investment Commission (‘ASIC’), and the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (‘APRA’).

This legislation provides a safe, supportive and confidential environment where a whistleblower can report misconduct without repercussions.

This policy outlines practices for how your business can maintain a whistleblower's confidentiality, provide the whistleblower with support, and handle reporting internally and confidentially.
