Treasury Laws Amendment (Whistleblowers) Bill 2017

AIST supports the measures in the exposure draft legislation to create a consolidated whistleblower protection framework. The development of a new framework should be accompanied by an examination of corporate misconduct within Australia because a robust whistleblower framework on its own cannot prevent misconduct. Other factors such as poor workplace culture and poor leadership can increase the likelihood of misconduct.
