Course Overview

In its simplest form whistleblowing concerns identifying and raising serious issues or concerns, usually at work, however the reality of whistleblowing is anything but simple; whistleblowing legislation is complex, and the act of whistleblowing can have extremely serious implications for all concerned.

This introductory webinar sets out the basic guidance for those looking to develop a whistleblowing policy for the first time, making it ideal for practice managers, partners and those thinking of setting up their own firm.

Taking account of and signposting to the various governmental, regulatory and charitable organisations that operate in this area, regulatory consultant Katie Jackson of Honne Ltd will examine what to consider when developing your own whistleblowing policy.

With accompanying slides and notes, this webinar provides ideas to take away for use in your practice; whether you are developing a whistleblowing policy from scratch or looking to create something which runs alongside your human resources department, this course will provide guidance on how you can bolster your own internal whistleblowing procedures.
