Parliamentary Joint Committee calls for stronger whistleblower protections

With Senator Deb O'Neill, Senator Chris Ketter and Matt Keogh MP 

The Parliamentary Joint Committee on Corporations and Financial Services has released its unanimous report on whistleblower protections in the corporate, public and not-for-profit sectors. 

Whistleblowers have helped deter and expose misconduct, fraud and corruption. Sadly, the reality is that under current laws, it is nearly impossible to protect them.

Mindful of the personal cost borne by many of those who have blown the whistle, we have recommended a replacement wage commensurate to the whistleblower's current salary as an advance of compensation. Whistleblowers should not have to weigh up sending their children to school against speaking out.
