This course explains the importance of having a whistleblowing policy and how to protect staff from any abuse or mistreatment during or after they blow the whistle.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

  • Understand need for a whistleblowing policy and how to raise concerns by whistleblowing
  • Learn about what constitutes as whistleblowing and what a ‘whistleblower’ is
  • Learn how you should handle and store disclosure records and the importance of following up once you have raised a concern

SECTION 1

Whistleblowing is all about calling attention to wrongdoing. Think about a referee in a football match blowing the whistle on foul play or a Victorian policeman blowing a whistle to bring attention to criminal activity. This section will cover what whistleblowing is and what the law is surrounding it. 

SECTION 2

Many organisations have a Whistleblowing Policy. Having a policy means that everyone understands the rules and knows what’s expected of them. It establishes a fair process which is followed by everyone. If your organisation has one, make sure you read and understand it. This section will cover Whistleblowing Policies and how to raise concerns regarding Whistleblowing. 

SECTION 3

Once you’ve made a disclosure and it’s not been made anonymously, you may receive acknowledgement of your disclosure. This depends on your organisation’s procedure or policy. In this final section, we look at following up after you have raised a concern and how employers should handle and store disclosure records.
