The new Protected Disclosures (Amendment) Act 2022 came into operation earlier this year and significantly expanded the scope of protections for those who make a protected disclosure.

Harry Wall, Ibec Employment Law Solicitor, will discuss these new obligations and highlight watchpoints for employers.

Magda Kozub, Employer Relations Executive, will discuss the benefits of this strategy and provide practical advice on how organisations can implement it.
