Protected Disclosures Policy

Published: 19 November 2019
From: Office of Public Works

The Protected Disclosures Act 2014 (the Act) became law on 15 July 2014.

The Act provides the process for workers to raise concerns about workplace wrongdoing, such as fraud, theft or danger and requires public bodies to act appropriately in response.

Under the Act, public bodies are required to have internal procedures for making and receiving a protected disclosure.

The OPW’s internal procedures are outlined in the Protected Disclosures Policy.

A worker who wishes to make a written disclosure should use the OPWPD01-1 form.
