Course Overview

This course will provide information about the protection that can be provided to people who report improper, corrupt or unlawful behaviour in the public sector. The course covers definitions of what constitutes a protected disclosure, what types of wrong doing are covered, and the protection from reprisals afforded to those making the disclosure. One of the main concerns for public sector agencies is how to manage disclosures and ensure that they are properly investigated. The course will include information on legal protection as well as internal reporting systems and answers the practical questions about to whom disclosures should be made and how they should be investigated. Learning is supported through case studies and interactive exercises.
