overview

The second annual Whistleblowing Symposium in Brisbane this year will unwrap the Final Report from Australia’s world-leading ‘Whistling While They Work 2’ research project, led by Professor AJ Brown of Griffith University.

Supported by research partner the Australian Securities and Investments Commission, you will hear what the regulator’s expectations are under the Corporations Act rules at this symposium.

With new Whistleblowing legislation in Australia finally in place, it is now time for the practical application of sound policies that comply with that legislation.

International best practice and standards will help us understand how Australia fares in relation to the US & EU when it comes to Whistleblowing protections. We discuss public interest disclosure and why protections in Australia have never been more important.
