Whistleblowing is encouraged because it promotes good governance and encouraging members from both the private and public sectors to come forward with information on activities such as corruption, abuse of authority, violation of ethical standards, and danger to public health or safety. The Whistleblower Protection Act 2010 protects those who make a disclosure of improper conduct to an enforcement agency by protecting their confidential information and protecting them against detrimental action being taken against them. Proper internal policies, procedures and training will allow employers to benefit from whistleblowing while protecting employers from any negative effects such as the wasting of time, loss of reputation and claims for damages.
