Protected Disclosures

The Protected Disclosures Act 2014, as amended by the Protected Disclosures (Amendment) Act 2022, provides a statutory framework for the protection of workers who raise concerns about relevant wrongdoing in their workplace from dismissal, penalisation or other sanctions by their employers.

Making a protected disclosure is also known as “whistleblowing”.

In accordance with the Protected Disclosures (Amendment) Act 2022, the Council has appointed Ned Brennan, Human Resource Management as its Designated Officer to receive protected disclosures.
