On 9 February 2022 the Government published the long-awaited Protected Disclosures (Amendment) Bill 2022 (the “Bill”) here, with the purpose of giving effect to Directive (EU) 2019/1937 and further enhancing the protections afforded to individuals under the current Protected Disclosures Act 2014 (the “2014 Act”).

Key Takeaway for Employers
Employers should now be updating their policies and procedures in this area. Many employers have made changes in anticipation of the new legislation. If there is no policy in place, one should be implemented, taking into consideration the requirement for formal reporting channels and processes that will soon become a legal requirement. Any ambiguity about the type of grievances which will be dealt with as protected disclosures should also be redressed by businesses to ensure efficient and compliant processing of complaints.
If you have any queries or require any assistance in relation to any of the above, please contact Barry Reynolds or Chris Ryan.
