Minutes:

The Public Interest Disclosure Act 1998 received the Royal Assent in July 1998 and came into force on 2nd July 1999,  The Act gives protection to “whistleblowers” that raise concerns about serious fraud or malpractice at their place of work against victimisation or dismissal, provided they have acted in a responsible way in dealing with their concerns.  In support of this, the Council actively promotes its Whistleblowing Policy to ensure all relevant parties are aware of it and of how and when to use it. 

 

It was noted that the main changes to the revised Whistleblowing Policy were details around job descriptions and data protection.

 

RESOLVED:

 

That the revised Whistleblowing Policy attached at Appendix 1 be approved and adopted.
