A suite of whistle-blower protection legislation has been introduced, with a view to reducing financial crime from within organisations. The legislative amendments broaden protection for corporate and financial sector whistle-blowers, and toughen penalties for organisations breach these regulations. With the advent of these legislative changes, implementing or updating current whistle-blower protection frameworks is vital to ensure an organisation’s compliance, as well as to avoid fines of up to $1m for single breaches of the legislation. This panel discussion consists of experts from legal and corporate backgrounds, and will deal with the implications of the legislation as well as how best to ensure that your own whistle-blower framework is compliant.
