In this policy ‘Whistleblowing’ means the reporting by employees of suspected misconduct, illegal acts or failure to act within the Council. The aim of this Policy is to encourage employees and others who have serious concerns about any aspect of the Council’s work to come forward and voice those concerns.

The Whistle-blower Policy is intended to encourage employees and others to make good faith reports of suspected fraud, corruption, or other improper activity, or health and safety concerns within the Business and to describe the process that will be followed by them.

An individual “blows the whistle” when they disclose information which relates to suspected wrongdoing or dangers at work. Whistleblowing concerns usually relate to the conduct of managers or staff, but they may sometimes relate to the actions of a third party, such as a customer, supplier or service provider.

A whistle-blower (also written as whistle-blower or whistle blower) is a person who exposes any kind of information or activity that is deemed illegal, unethical, or not correct within an organization that is either private or public. … Because of this, a number of laws exist to protect whistle-blowers.

According to the Protected Disclosure Act 26 of 2000 and Protected Disclosure Amended Act 5 of 2017 a Whistle blower who made a report in good faith may not be fired or victimised in any way by his/her employer.  The employer must put measures in place to protect the whistle-blower.

Whistle blowing means calling attention to wrongdoing that is occurring within an organization.

The presence of honesty allows for complete dedication to the organization’s mission and success. By encouraging a whistle blowing culture, the organization promotes transparent structure and effective, clear communication. More importantly, whistle blowing can protect the organization’s clients. 40% of dishonesty is discovered through whistleblowing.

It is difficult to speak up about unethical behaviour, such as harassment or fraud, without access to a reporting channel that allows for secure and anonymous dialogue. Many potential whistle-blowers fear for repercussions or contempt.  Whistleblowing is the process that allows people to speak up anonymously.

Whistle-blowers can be remunerated for the information they supply but as a rule it is not good practice to reimburse whistle-blowers.

Under the Employers Whistle blowing policy if an employee “blows the whistle” they will receive protection from being dismissed or victimised (i.e. by being subjected to a detriment) because of their whistleblowing. … The whistle-blower will lose any statutory protection if they commit an offence when making the disclosure.
