Protected Disclosures

The Protected Disclosures Act 2014, commenced on 15 July 2014. This important piece of legislation set a new standard of international best practice for whistleblowing in Ireland. 

 

Public sector bodies have a mandatory obligation to whistleblowing policies and procedures in place. The European Union directive (2019/1937) will be fully implemented in Ireland by early 2022. The changes to the legislation because of the directive will obligate private sector organisations, above a certain size, to have policies and procedures in place to support the effective raising of concerns under this legislation.
