Review of Tax and Corporate Whistleblower Protections in Australia and Whistleblower Protections in the corporate, public and not-for-profit sectors
The Law Council welcomes the Australian Government’s initiative in reviewing current legislative and other arrangements with respect to reforming the regulation of whistleblowing impacting on the activities of companies and major institutions.
The Law Council acknowledges that there is a public interest in ensuring appropriate protections are afforded to whistleblowers in the corporate, public and not-for-profit sector.
The Law Council strongly supports significant reform of whistleblowing laws in Australia. It congratulates the Treasury on its Consultation Paper Review of tax and corporate whistleblower protections in Australia and the comprehensive and well targeted list of questions that have been posed.
The Law Council believes this reform is now urgent and supports its inclusion in the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet’s reform agenda.
