Whistleblower Policy Free Template.

In 2019, the Australian Federal Government passed new whistleblower legislation to ensure that people have the ability to anonymously report unethical or illegal behaviour occurring in Australian businesses. Companies who fail to follow the new federal whistleblower laws could face penalties of up to $10.5 million. You need distribute the policy and record acknowledgment of the policy and the policy must always be available to employees.
